Vehicles lie in a tangle on Interstate 10 in southeastern Texas after a 100-car pileup on a foggy Thanksgiving morning. Authorities said two people were killed and more than 80 were injured. Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Deputy Rod Carroll told The Associated Press the fog was so thick that deputies didn't immediately realize they were dealing with multiple accidents. "It is catastrophic," Carroll said. "I've got cars on top of cars." The collision occurred southwest of Beaumont, about 80 miles east of Houston.
