A woman from Orleans County was killed in a 13-vehicle pileup during a dust storm in the Texas Panhandle.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says Tammy Page of Medina died when the car she was riding in became pinned between two trucks. Page was a passenger in the back seat.

The accident happened Wednesday night on Interstate 40 near Conway, 30 miles east of Amarillo.

In all, six cars, one motorcycle and six tractor-trailer rigs crashed when the dust storm caused zero visibility.
