100 cars involved in massive car accident pileup, 2 people killed

As many Michigan residents may have heard, more than 100 people were injured and two people were killed yesterday during a multi-car wreck that involved about 100 cars in Texas. The Thanksgiving Day crash took place at about 8:45 a.m. on Interstate 10.

While authorities are still investigating the cause of the collisions, they believe that foggy weather was a factor. They believe one collision took place and chain reaction crashes followed, ultimately leading to 120 injuries as well as two deaths.

The people who were killed in the car accident were identified as a 64-year-old man and a 60-year-old woman. Their vehicle was reportedly rear-ended by an 18-wheeler.

Several large vehicles were involved in the pileup, and of course when larger vehicles are involved there are often serious injuries or deaths. According to a news report, a FedEx truck, tractor-trailer trucks, minivans and pickup trucks were among vehicles involved.

The highway was closed for much of the day following the accident as authorities cleaned up the scene and conducted investigations.

Determining fault and assigning liability in chain reaction car accidents is very complicated. Not only is the evidence-gathering process quite complex, but laws surrounding chain reaction accidents vary from state to state and are generally multifaceted. For this reason, anyone involved in a pileup car accident or chain reaction collision here in Michigan is wise to work with an experienced car accident attorney in order to seek compensation from the appropriate parties for injuries.

The cause of this unfortunate collision remains to be determined. Thanksgiving week has a reputation as being one of the deadliest times on U.S. roadways, largely due to the increase in traffic and the number of drivers venturing out onto unfamiliar roads--some of them doing so while drowsy or intoxicated. Hopefully drivers here in Michigan and throughout the country will travel safely and responsibly as the holiday weekend continues.
