'Just mangled': Five people dead after more than 100 cars crash

At least five people have been killed after a massive crash involving more than 100 cars on a Texas highway.

The accident occurred on Interstate-35W around 6.30am on Thursday (local time) as a winter storm dropped freezing rain, sleet and snow on parts of the US.
