Acadian Ambulance Service responded to a series of traffic accidents on Interstate 10 near mile marker 835 in Jefferson County, Texas, Thanksgiving morning. According to law enforcement officials, more than 140 vehicles were involved.

As of 11:30 a.m., Acadian had responded with 22 units and had transported 51 patients to local hospitals. Acadian units from Houston, Beaumont and Lake Charles were involved in the response, while other Acadian resources from surrounding areas were moved into those areas to maintain appropriate levels of service.

Acadian assisted local law enforcement agencies, as well as various area fire departments, in responding to the accidents.

Acadian's Beaumont communications center coordinated the company's response, while the Lafayette, La., communications center provided additional logistical support.
