Reports show the crash happened in the westbound lanes of I-40 at Exit 8 to New Mexico State Road 118, southwest of the Defiance area at the Manuelito Interchange. The cause of the incident is still under police investigation at this time. 

Paramedics rendered emergency medical aid to those involved at the scene. One or more injured victims were treated and transported to local hospitals as necessary. 

Motorists were asked to use caution and slow down in the area. The scene was occupied by responders for over two hours, sources said.
