Massive pileup shuts I-10 in Texas; two dead

BEAUMONT, Texas — Two people died and more than 80 were hurt Thursday when at least 140 vehicles collided in Southeast Texas in a pileup that left trucks twisted on top of one another and authorities rushing to pull survivors from the miles of wreckage.

The collision occurred in foggy conditions at about 8:45 a.m. Thursday on Interstate 10 southwest of Beaumont, a Gulf Coast city about 80 miles east of Houston.
