An Alabama interstate where hundreds of people spent a freezing night has been reopened north of Birmingham.
Motorists were stranded after as much as 4 inches of snow caused a series of wrecks that snarled traffic for miles. Alabama state troopers say the interstate was reopened in both directions Friday morning.
