Reports: Phoenix-bound Greyhound bus in deadly crash along New Mexico freeway

The bus was carrying 49 passengers and heading to Phoenix, Arizona.

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board were dispatched to the scene, along with the New Mexico State Police Crash Reconstruction Unit. "The officers did a great job of sifting through the rubble to get survivors out". "Officers and EMS are still working this scene actively".

Police say the westbound lane is closed as they investigate what caused the accident that caused multiple injuries and casualties.

It collided with the truck around 12:30 p.m. on Interstate 40 near the city of Thoreau, located about 100 miles west of Albuquerque, the state police said. Nearby was an overturned vehicle and what appeared to be a truck trailer on its side, with contents spilled on the median.

Preliminary information indicated the semi was headed east when it blew a tire, sending the rig across the median and into oncoming traffic where it smashed into the bus, New Mexico State Police said. Injuries to the driver of the semi-trailer truck were not life threatening, state police said. They also have not said how many people were killed or how many were injured.
