Four killed in bus crash in US

New Mexico Interstate 40 crash in Thoreau leaves 'multiple dead' | Daily Star

UNM officials didn't release any details about the patients' conditions. Multiple people were killed and others were seriously injured.

This is the second deadly crash involving a bus and a semi-truck in New Mexico this summer.

Most of the 49 people on the bus, including adults and children, were taken to area hospitals with different degrees of injuries.

Passing motorists described a chaotic scene with passengers on the ground and people screaming.

He says he came across the driver of the semi sitting on the shoulder of the highway and that the driver told him that one of his front tires had burst, forcing the truck to veer into oncoming traffic, where it struck the bus.

Greyhound said a total of 47 passengers were on board during the time of the crash. They also have not said how many people were killed or how many were injured.

The bus was left St. Louis on Wednesday and was headed to Los Angeles, according to St. Louis television station KMOV.

A spokeswoman for Greyhound said the company is cooperating with local authorities and will do its own investigation.

It was traveling between Albuquerque and Phoenix when state police said it crashed along along Interstate I-40 in McKinley County.

Aerial footage by CNN affiliate KRQE showed the bus damaged on the front edge, but upright, in the grass median.

One survivor, Rachel Cunningham, who said she was asleep on the Greyhound when the crash happened, woke up to a gaping hole in the bus' passenger side. "Officers and EMS are still working this scene actively". The cause of the accident was not immediately known. Traffic was backed up along the interstate near the town of Thoreau as westbound lanes were blocked.

According to the Greyhound's bus tracker, this bus made a quick stop in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Elk City just two days ago. She deferred comment regarding the crash to the state police.

"Our first priority is taking care of our passengers and their families, as this incident has deeply impacted all involved".
