2 Dead, 80 Injured in 140 Car Pileup in Texas

Two people are dead and at least eighty were injured after a pileup on Interstate 10, in Texas, Thursday morning.

At least one hundred and forty vehicles were involved and both sides of the freeway were closed, near mile marker 833, eighty miles east of Houston.

Authorities say that the jaws of life had to be used on at least two vehicles.

They also tell us that two hazardous material vehicles are involved, but there was no sign of leaking.

Emergency workers spent most of Thursday searching for more people in the mass of vehicles.

Fog is being blamed for the multiple accidents.
