ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A chain-reaction crash involving a bus and two other vehicles on a major Albuquerque thoroughfare sent four people to the hospital.

Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Sgt. Aaron Williamson says there were no immediate arrests but that alcohol appeared to be a factor in the crash that shut down westbound lanes of Interstate 40 for about two hours Tuesday night.

Williamson says 47 people complained of injuries, but most were treated at the scene. Williamson says the four people who were sent to the hospital did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

Williamson says a car rear-ended a bus from a local rescue mission and the car itself was rear-ended by a truck. The bus remained upright.
