PECOS, Texas — Transportation officials say a multi-vehicle pileup on Interstate 10 in West Texas has closed a portion of the highway and claimed the life of at least one.
Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Santos Carrasco Jr., says the pileup occurred Saturday and involved 10 vehicles. He says one person has died but the person's name was not released.
The Texas Department of Transportation said the pileup was due to icy weather conditions on I-10 westbound at mile marker 192. The accident is about 160 miles east of El Paso and four miles east of the Interstate 20 interchange.
Traffic is being diverted onto Highway 285 in Pecos, and some of it into New Mexico.
West Texas and parts of southeastern New Mexico are battling dangerously icy roads and freezing temperatures this weekend thanks to a cold front.
