New Mexico passenger bus crash kills 3, sends 22 to hospital

Multiple injuries were reported after a multi-vehicle crash involving a tour bus in New Mexico

Three people were killed and 24 others were injured in a crash involving a tour bus and three other vehicles on Interstate 25 in New Mexico, authorities said Sunday.

The Sandoval County Sheriff's Office said that the incident began at around 2 a.m. when a auto struck a pickup truck from behind just north of Bernalillo, about 18 miles north of Albuquerque.

An oncoming bus tried to dodge the ejected driver sprawled in the roadway, but the bus driver lost control and flipped into the northbound lanes. It was then sideswiped by a semitruck, according to Elder.

Photos show a mangled vehicle that's nearly entirely flattened and the bus on its side on Interstate 25 just north of Bernalillo, about 18 miles north of Albuquerque.

Its route wasn't immediately known and officials of the bus company didn't immediately comment on the accident.

"The first unit arrived on scene to find a bus on its side with patients trapped inside", Maxon said.
