BERNALILLO, N.M. – Four people remain in critical condition after a deadly crash involving a commercial passenger bus and three other vehicles on a New Mexico highway early Sunday.
Authorities said three people were killed and two dozen were injured, including 12 who were still hospitalized Monday. Hospital officials say several patients have been treated and released.
The Sandoval County Sheriff’s Office hasn’t released the names of the dead.
One of the people killed was in a car that struck a pickup truck from behind about 2 a.m. Sunday on Interstate 25 north of Albuquerque. The bus driver took evasive action to avoid the disabled car and its driver but lost control. The bus rolled and was sideswiped by a semi-truck.
The wreckage was strewn across the interstate, forcing its closure for hours.
