Two Dead, Dozens Injured in Texas Pileup Involving More Than 100 Cars
At least two people were killed and dozens more injured in a massive pileup involving at least 140 vehicles. Dense fog played a major role in the horrific Thanksgiving Day accident in southeast Texas.
Dominic Di-Natale reports that the catastrophe happened Thursday at 8:45am on Interstate 10.
Police described it as a chain reaction event. Deputy Rod Carroll said at the time, “The cause of the accident was a heavy fog bank rolled into this area this morning … which caused no one to be able to see and of course one accident triggered another accident, triggered another and a chain reaction.”
