There were fatalities in the bus and another vehicle, a Ford F-150, involved in the crash, Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Steven Blanco said.
“The university is currently attempting to notify family members of those involved in the accident,” said the university based in Hobbs, New Mexico.
“We will not be releasing the names and numbers of those deceased as we work with the university to confirm and further the investigation at this time,” Blanco told reporters at the scene.
CNN has reached out to Texas Department of Public Safety for more information.
