BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - A massive vehicle pileup on an Interstate highway in Southeast Texas has left two people dead and more than 80 injured.

At least 100 vehicles collided in extremely foggy conditions at about 8:45 a.m. Thanksgiving Day on Interstate 10 southwest of Beaumont, a Gulf Coast city about 80 miles east of Houston.

The Texas Department of Public Safety tells KFDM-TV that a man and a woman were killed in a Chevy Suburban SUV crushed by a tractor trailer.

I-10's eastbound lanes were re-opened Thursday evening after more than eight hours.
