BLOOMINGTON — Indiana State Police say road crews have freed dozens of vehicles that became stuck on a central Indiana highway because they couldn't make it up a hill on the slick road.

Sgt. Curt Durnil says about 40 vehicles became stuck Wednesday morning on Indiana 37 near the Monroe-Morgan county line between Bloomington and Martinsville. He says it took a couple hours for state highway crews to clear the roadway but it remained hazardous.

Durnil says the people in those vehicles weren't in any danger but that southbound traffic was stopped at Martinsville until the tie-up was cleared.

Much of the state remains under a blizzard warning from the National Weather Service and at least a dozen counties are warning drivers to only travel in emergencies.
