Two people have died after as many as 150 vehicles crashed into each other in a Southeast Texas interstate. Up to 120 people were injured, reports Reuters. "We have 18-wheelers on top of cars, we have cars on top of cars. It's just catastrophic," said Deputy Rod Carroll of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. The collision took place at around 8 a.m. Thursday in extremely foggy conditions about 80 miles east of Houston, reports the Associated Press.
