A Quebec Superior Court judge has approved a class action lawsuit for more than 300 people who were stranded in their cars overnight on Highway 13 during a snowstorm last winter.

Heavy snow and two disabled tractor trailers trapped motorists on the highway, some for up to 12 hours. It was 4:30 a.m. before Montreal firefighters arrived at the scene to help stranded motorists.

Justice Donald Bisson ruled Tuesday the class action lawsuit can proceed. Anyone stranded on the highway for any length of time between 7:00 p.m. last March 14 and 12:00 p.m. the next day is eligible to take part.
