Four injured in sixteen-vehicle pileup

Amarillo, TX -- Four people were injured in a sixteen-vehicle pileup, and officials believe heavy smoke from a nearby grass fire is to blame.

Around 3:00 Thursday afternoon, DPS troopers responded to a multiple-vehicle accident on Highway 60 just west of Highland Park High School near the Amarillo College East Campus.

A trooper on scene told us that four people were taken to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The Department of Public Safety believes that heavy smoke obscured the roadway.
