A multiple-car pileup on Beltway 8 in Houston killed two people and injured four others on Friday, November 15.

According to the Harris County Precinct 4 report, the accident occurred around 11 a.m. in the westbound lanes of Beltway 8 when a dump truck slammed into several vehicles.

The report said that a Global Waste Services garbage truck crashed into an extended cab truck with four people on-board. Immediately afterwards, the dump truck struck another vehicle with two people on-board, and then went on to hit a pickup truck.

The impact sent the pickup truck into a concrete barrier where it burst into flames. The dump truck driver and the pickup driver both died on site.
