Terribly sad. I just missed something similiar in Florida back in January.
Florida State Highway Patrol shut down I-75, but then opened it back up and a fog bank returned.

I am surprised the Highway Patrol didn't close I-10 once the fog got to a certain loss of visibility. It happens so quick.

Just a tragedy.

On a smaller scale, this type of fog accident has occurred numerous times on Afton Mountain here in Virginia. Folks just seem to ignore fog and what it might conceal ahead, and just keep on going until it's too late. What a tragedy. We understand that many of the un-injured motorists tried their best to help the injured.
