ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The medical investigator has released the names of five of the eight victims killed in Thursday’s horrific crash between a semi-tractor trailer and Greyhound bus near Thoreau, NM.
The Office of the Medical Investigator sent out a statement Saturday night identifying the deceased as Sadie Thomas, 50, Charla Bahe, 34, Terry Mason, 45, Veronica Williams, 49, and Greyhound bus driver Luis Alvarez, 50.
“My heart goes out to the families of these victims. We are always diligent to try and identify decedents quickly so we can release them back to their families,” said Dr. Kurt Nolte, Chief Medical Investigator. “We know there are other families who are still waiting for word of their loved ones and we are using several identification methods to make those identifications.”
