Midland County, TX (CNN) - Investigators are blaming a dust storm for this massive pile-up on a West Texas interstate.

The Texas Department of Safety says there were actually three separate crashes yesterday in the same area, around the same time due to limited visibility from the storm.

The first crash involved 10 cars and left two men dead.

The second one involved seven cars, and a third was a single-car rollover.

Crews spent all night clearing the wreckage.
