Multiple wrecks on Eastex Freeway in Beaumont
KFDM News - Emergency crews in Beaumont were very busy Saturday afternoon investigating eight wrecks.
The eight wrecks involved 12 vehicles. The crashes occurred in the 7800 block of the Eastex Freeway near the LNVA canal, which is also near Lawrence Drive. Seven of the vehicles had to be towed.
Beaumont police believe one driver may have either hit the brakes or slowed down, which caused a chain reaction of crashes with the cars behind the first vehicle. However, the crashes are still under investigation.
Police say no one was seriously injured.
