New Mexico Interstate 40 crash in Thoreau leaves 'multiple dead'

KRQEA bus and semi-truck crashed into each other on Interstate 40 in Thoreau N.M. Aug. 30 2018

More than seven people have been killed and many injured after a Greyhound bus was involved in a horrific head-on crash with a semitrailer on a New Mexico highway.

New Mexico State Police said preliminary information showed that the semi-tractor trailer was traveling eastbound when it had a tire blowout and crossed into oncoming traffic, colliding with the bus.

Greyhound said the Phoenix, Arizona-bound bus carried 49 passengers.

State Police provided few immediate details about the incident on Interstate 40 near Thoreau, about 100 miles west-northwest of Albuquerque, including the number of dead and injured. The driver of the truck sustained injuries that were not life-threatening, the state police said.

Spokeswoman Crystal Booker says it's unclear what caused the crash.

Rachel Cunningham told CBS News she was asleep on the Greyhound at the moment of impact. He said 20 people were brought in, four of whom were children.

Indians turned in nearly all the currency notes banned in 2016: RBI
The total value of SBNs in circulation as on November 08, 2016, post verification and reconciliation, was Rs 15,417.93 billion. The share of Rs 2,000 notes by value has declined to 37.3% as on March 2018 as compared to 50.2% a year ago.

Six people with injuries too severe to be treated there were stabilized and taken to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque. One was in critical condition and two were in serious condition, Gaines said. "We are working with regional resources for reunification of those families".

Officials have also set a reunification center at the McKinley County Fire Office at 413 Bataan Memorial Drive in Gallup.

"These are the types of things we prepare for and hope we never have to deal with", Gaines said.

Authorities have said that people were injured in the crash along Interstate 40 but they have not provided an exact count.

"It just stays in your mind", he said.

"It's by far one of the worst accidents I've encountered", witness Marc Gonzales told KRQE.
