In Northern Virginia, 23 vehicles piled up on the Beltway near mile-marker 50 in Fairfax just after 5 a.m. The icy conditions even made travel for emergency vehicles treacherous. Transportation officials pleaded with drivers to delay trips until at least 9 a.m. Saturday as precipitation turned frozen pavement into treacherous ice-covered roadways.
