ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Medical investigators have determined the Mesa Vista school bus driver killed in a crash last month died from injuries and not a medical episode.
The state Office of the Medical Investigator listed the cause of death for Pat Valdez, 69, as multiple blunt force injuries as a result of an accident.
On the morning of April 8 Valdez and nine kids plunged down an embankment near Ojo Caliente northwest of Española.
Valdez was pronounced dead on the scene. Several kids were seriously hurt.
New Mexico State Police were investigating whether Valdez might have died from a heart attack causing him to lose control and then crash the bus.
State Police say they still aren't ruling out a medical episode as contributing to the crash. Results of toxicology tests are pending.
