Snow causes havoc as hundreds of vehicles left stranded on highway in northern China
Hundreds of vehicles became stranded on a snow-covered road in northern China.
Video captured in the city of Harbin in Heilongjiang Province on November 8 shows hundreds of vehicles getting struggling to move on an over 3-kilometre-long traffic jam on an icy road.
A man in the video said: "There is an incident on the bridge and cars could not go through. Please detour."
According to a resident named Zhang, the vehicles could not move forward due to the icy and slippery road.
Police officers and sanitation workers applied the snowmelt on the road to allow the vehicles to drive through successfully.
