BEAUMONT, Texas - - - The children of a Houston-area couple killed during Thursday's massive highway wreck on I-10 say this was the family's first Thanksgiving apart.
V.J. and Richard Leggio tell KHOU-TV that their parents - 64-year-old Vincent Leggio and 60-year-old Debbie Leggio of Pearland - were driving east on Interstate 10 to Louisiana for a gambling trip.
V.J., who worked with his father at the family business, says the family is devastated.
The couple was killed in a chain-reaction crash during heavy fog along Interstate 10 that involved more than 100 vehicles, many left twisted on top of each other.
At least 80 people were injured. Twelve were in serious condition Thursday night. Phone messages left Friday for law enforcement officials weren't returned.
The wreck occurred southwest of Beaumont, on Texas' Gulf Coast.
