A 26-vehicle pileup in Austin, Texas on Thursday morning is being attributed to winter weather. The same morning, a fatal pileup involving 75-100 vehicles was reported in Fort Worth.
According to KSAT, the pileup occurred Monday morning with calls being made to police at around 8:20 am.
Preliminary reports say the accident occurred in the eastbound lanes of the 13000 block of North State Highway 45. The section of the state is an overpass, making it more prone to ice.
Another multi-car crash involving five vehicles was reported near Cesar Chavez and the Mopac Expressway, and a third accident with at least 13 vehicles on State Highway 45.
Drivers are urged to take extra precautions as winter weather continues to move through Texas, especially on overpasses and bridges.
Crashes can be disorienting, especially those that may involve multiple collisions like pile-ups. However, there are a few steps that you can take to ensure your safety as well as protect your rights if the accident was not your fault.
