MLK holiday weekend travelers and snow cause major traffic delays in Sierra

Getting away, up to the Sierra snow, for a three-day weekend sounds like a good idea, until you're stuck sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Chain control checkpoints – stacked deep with holiday weekend travelers – combined with off-and-on Interstate 80 closures because of spin-outs and crashes, left drivers waiting it out after being held back by Caltrans Friday afternoon and evening. KCRA 3's Melanie Wingo reports.
