A 140-vehicle pileup on I-10 left as many as 80 people injured and claimed the lives of two people Department of Public Safety officials said.

Police identified the two fatalities killed in the pileup in Beaumont as 60-year-old Debra Leggio and 64-year-old Vincent Leggio.

Interstate 10 was closed for more than 8 hours as emergency crews struggled to clean up hundreds of cars piled on top of one another.

DPS said the pileup accident in Texas may have been sparked by one initial crash in the eastbound lanes of I-10, which led to a chain reaction of collisions.

An estimated 80-90 people were transported to area hospitals with injuries caused by the massive accident outside Houston. Ten to 12 of those people transported to the hospital were in critical condition as a result of injuries they endured.
