Beaumont, TX – Two people died and many others were injured in a collision involving over 100 vehicles near Beaumont Thanksgiving morning. As reported by the Houston Chronicle, an estimated 80 to 100 people were injured in the massive chain-reaction pileup that resulted in the deaths of a Pearland couple.
Twenty-two ambulances were reportedly called to the scene, with 51 people purportedly being taken to area hospitals. The pileup shut down the freeway for two miles.
Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Rod Carroll is quoted in the report as stating of the multiple accidents, “It is catastrophic…I’ve got cars on top of cars.”
Troopers attributed the massive wreck to dense fog that led to low visibility in the area.
Investigations into the massive crash are ongoing.
