According to the Daily Mail, the crash site runs more than one and a half miles long, and first responders are referring to the catastrophe as a "mass casualty incident."

Early Thursday morning, the Fort Worth Fire Department tweeted, "MCI alert. 1601 N Freeway. Multiple vehicles involved. Multiple people trapped. More details to follow. PIO responding."
