Over 2,000 cars stuck in eastern France

Paris: The travel chaos in eastern France caused by heavy snowfall and ice was slowly easing early on Wednesday morning, after more than 2,000 cars were stuck on a motorway overnight. Hundreds of vehicles were backed up on the A40 at Bellegard-sur-Valserine near the Swiss border on Tuesday evening, regional newspaper Le Dauphine Libere reported. Local authorities said they were working on clearing the motorway, and issued a warning to the public to be careful and limit their travel. The Red Cross was also deployed to help, authorities said.
