6 Dead In 100-Vehicle Pileup On Icy Texas Highway

Houston:  At least six people were killed in a massive car pileup along an icy highway in the US state of Texas, according to media reports.

Nearly 100 vehicles were involved in the deadly crash that took place on Thursday on the interstate highway north of downtown Fort Worth, reports Xinhua news agency.

The crash took place around 6 a.m as many hospital and emergency workers were heading to and from work, so some of those involved were health care workers and emergency responders, including police officers.

Fort Worth Fire Department spokesman Michael Drivdahl said that besides the victims, 36 people were also injured in the accident.

Rescue crews continued to assist at the multiple accident scenes, searching injured people vehicle by vehicle.

“We are working through front to back, back to front, making sure that every driver, every person in every car is accounted for,” Drivdahl told reporters.

A video posted on social media showed that dozens of vehicles piled up on the road, with several 18-wheelers and tractor-trailers involved.
