Just released 911 tapes - revealing more about the chaos and carnage during last week's Thanksgiving Day pile-up on I-10 in Beaumont, Texas. 

Foggy conditions caused about 140 cars and trucks to collide.
Here is the transcript from two of the crash victims crying out for help:

They have a major accident over here {inaudible} cars and 18-wheelers and everything. I don't know where we are and the fog is thick. 

"Please get on I-10 immediately."
"Ma'am, we got 'em coming okay?"
"Things are still hittime me."
"Yes ma'am we get em coming."
"Another collision..."
"Ma'am, ma'am, they en route okay?"
"Okay."

Two people were killed in the pile-up and 90 others had to be rushed to area hospitals.
