(HOUSTON) — A major traffic tie-up involving about a hundred vehicles on a Texas highway this Thanksgiving has killed two and sent 50 to the hospital, according to ABC affiliate KBMT-TV.
Dozens of vehicles crashed into one another Thursday morning on Interstate 10 outside of Beaumont. Witnesses reported a thick, dense fog when the crash occurred, but the Texas Department of Public Safety continues to investigate the accident.
Among all the destroyed vehicles and deaths, 5-year-old Damien Ortiz wanted to lend a helping hand. He and his mother lost their puppy during the crash, but they are giving new meaning to the holiday spirit. Ortiz asked his mother if he could make sandwiches from the holiday turkey that they were transporting to the Houston area and give them out to those who were injured in the area while waiting for EMS.
