Eight people killed in collision involving bus and semi truck on Interstate 40 near Thoreau, New Mexico
Multiple people were killed and others were seriously injured Thursday in a crash involving a commercial passenger bus and a semi-truck along Interstate 40 in New Mexico, near the Arizona border, authorities said.
If you suspect someone you know to have been on that bus, the McKinley County Emergency Management has established a phone number for loved ones and family members looking for additional information: 505-722-2002.
The two children were born at Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services clinic in Gallup. They were then transferred to the neonatal intensive care unit at the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, Sonlee West, a surgeon and director of the hospital’s trauma unit, said Friday.
Authorities on Saturday identified five of the eight people who died in this week's crash involving a Greyhound bus and a semitrailer on Interstate 40 in New Mexico.
In the last five months, at least two lawsuits have been filed against the drivers of the truck and bus, their companies, and the New Mexico Department of Transportation.
