Truckers wait out winter storm in Troy, Ill.

TROY, Ill. - Truckers make their living on the roads, but even the most experienced of drivers chose to wait out the storm Sunday.

One truck stop in Troy, Ill. was full of drivers who had stopped to let the storm pass.

Some did decide to brave the conditions, but others said visibility was so poor, trying to make the trip just wasn't worth it.

"White-out conditions are always really bad, and one minute you can see fine then the next minute I can't even see the end of my hood. So this load's not that important, it can wait another day," said truck driver Rick Barton.

The conditions did take their toll on truckers. Our crews found a semi on its side on Interstate 55 just west of Troy.
