THANKSGIVING DAY NIGHTMARE ALONG HIGHWAY IN TEXAS
Leaves 2 dead, dozens injured

November 23, 2012




Aerial shot of just a porton of the accident scene in Texas.
(BEAUMONT, TEXAS) -- It was a nightmare of an event on a day that was supposed to be filled with the warmth and companionship of family and friends around a Thanksgiving Day table.

But for many in Texas, it was a day of death and injury in a brutal and massive pileup crash of numerous cars and trucks along Interstate 10 about ten miles southwest of Beaumont, a Gulf Coast city about 80 miles east of Galveston.

Authorities said at least two people died and dozens, up to 80 people, were hurt Thursday when upwards of 140 vehicles collided in dense fog around 8:00 am along that stretch of Interstate in Southeast Texas.

By the time first responders arrived they were immediately rushing to pull survivors from the miles of twisted wreckage; wreckage that left trucks twisted on top of each other and cars underneath big commercial rigs.

Both sides of I-10 were shut down for hours, stranding tens of thousands of other drivers, many of whom were enroute to holiday destinations of their own.

Below is some early raw footage of the accident scene.



It wasn't immediately clear how the pileup started, but a spokesman for the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said the fog was so thick – some drivers reportedly could see only about a foot in front of them - that deputies didn't immediately realize they were dealing with multiple accidents.

KFDM-TV reported that the two who died were in an SUV that was involved in the pileup.
