6 killed in New Mexico interstate car crash during a dust storm

Bishkek (AKIpress) - 10a0af7fd1af9f8e5febd33ad0afaff4 State Police say at least six people are dead after several vehicles collided on a southwestern New Mexico interstate during a dust storm.

The crash occurred about 5:30 p.m. MDT Thursday in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 in Hidalgo County, several miles from the Arizona border.

Police said their "initial investigation has revealed that due to a severe dust storm, several vehicles, both passenger vehicles and Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMV), were involved," the AP cited.

They say six people have been confirmed dead. A brief news release did not include any details about injuries or give a specific number of vehicles involved.

All lanes of the roadway were shut down following the crash, but police say westbound lanes have since been reopened.

Police say no other details are immediately available.
