A viral TikTok video shows how a bread truck delivery driver was able to come to the much-needed assistance of dozens of unsuspecting drivers who were left stranded on I-95 in Virginia for over 24 hours due to snowy weather and freezing temperatures this week.
"This couple had not eaten a thing for 37 hours stranded on this frozen Virginia interstate so they called the bread company whose truck was just ahead of them, asking if they could have what was inside," the narrator of the video said, showing a photo of Casey Holihan and her husband, John Noe, and the Schmidt Baking Company truck.
"To their surprise, the driver of the truck was contacted and was given the go-ahead to start handing out bread to 50 hungry motorists," they added, as the video shows the driver wearing boots and gloves handing out bags of bread from the Baltimore-based company's truck.
VIRGINIA'S SNOWY I-95 TRAFFIC JAM INVITES CALL FOR BETTER PREPAREDNESS FOR THE UNEXPECTED
It is unclear how many people were fed by the gesture or how long the drivers had been stuck in the traffic clog before they were rescued.
The enmeshed traffic prompted Virginia state transportation officials to close the entire interstate, including the primarily congested areas between exits 152 and 104.
