ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Emergency Management agency officials say several state agencies will help reunite drivers with cars they ditched along metro Atlanta interstates.

GEMA officials said State Patrol, the Department of Transportation, the National Guard and others were expected to help return drivers to abandoned cars on Interstates 20, 285 and 75 beginning Thursday morning. Officials said the agencies would provide drivers with fuel if their cars ran out of gas before they were abandoned.

Interstates in the metro Atlanta region were littered with abandoned cars after a snow storm and traffic jams left drivers stuck on highways for hours in sub-freezing temperatures.

GEMA officials say state patrol will have a database motorists can use to find their car if it was towed. Drivers are asked to bring their keys and license.
