Huge pileup on I-10 in Texas kills 2, injures dozens
BEAUMONT, Texas (KABC) -- A massive pileup involving an estimated 100 vehicles killed two people, injured dozens and shut down a busy interstate in Southeast Texas Thursday.
Officials said dense fog is likely to blame for the crash. At least 51 people have been hospitalized, with at least eight critically hurt.
The collision happened around 8 a.m. Thanksgiving Day on Interstate 10 near Beaumont, which is about 80 miles east of Houston.
It wasn't immediately clear how the pileup began. Officials said the fog was so thick that deputies didn't immediately realize they were dealing with multiple accidents.
Uninjured drivers tried to help as authorities sorted through the wreckage.
