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.
