2 Dead, 50 Injured in Icy New Mexico Bus Crash

Police in central New Mexico say a tour bus lost control in an area with icy roads and overturned, killing two people and injuring at least 50 others.

The Torrance County Sheriff's Department said the bus was traveling north on U.S. 54 near Corona Friday night when the driver lost control in a construction zone.

The bus hit the median and overturned.

The injured included a 9-year-old child.

The bus had come from El Paso, Texas, but authorities did not immediately say where it was headed.

The sheriff's department says roads were snowpacked and icy in the area and that may have contributed to the crash.
