A 100-vehicle pileup on a Texas highway Thanksgiving morning, which killed at least two people and injured as many as 120, is still under investigation.

CNN reported that the victims "were identified as Vincent Leggio, 64, and Debra Leggio, 60, both of Pearland, Texas. The two were killed when their vehicle was hit from behind by an 18-wheeler, the Department of Public Safety said."

The children of the Houston-area couple killed in the wreck said it was the family's first Thanksgiving apart, according to The Associated Press.

The wreck occurred on Interstate 10 southwest of Beaumont on Texas' Gulf Coast during heavy fog.

Looks like I10 west of San Antonio which is 290 miles and 2 geographical differences away. That's like showing a photo of the highway in two different states and saying it's the same.
