Ten members of the band La Reyna De Monterrey were killed in a car accident in Mexico on Saturday (27Apr13).

The Banda musical group was travelling home to Monterrey following its Friday night (26Apr13) gig in Nuevo Laredo when its tour bus driver allegedly dozed off at the wheel.

The vehicle struck the side of a truck and then crossed into the opposite lane, colliding with a tractor-trailer.

Police have yet to release the names of the deceased, but five others were injured and are currently receiving medical treatment at a hospital in Salinas Hidalgo.

An investigation is ongoing, according to the Associated Press.
