By PORFIRIO IBARRA, Associated Press

MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) — Police say that 10 members of the musical group La Reyna de Monterrey have been killed and five injured in a road accident in northern Mexico.

Find: 'I Love Jenni' continues after star's death

A police official says the driver of the vehicle that was carrying the band dozed off Saturday morning, causing the vehicle to strike the side of a truck then cross over into the other lane and crash head on with a tractor-trailer. The official spoke on condition of anonymity for security reasons.

The official said the impact was so powerful that many band members were thrown from the vehicle onto the highway connecting Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey.

La Reyna de Monterrey played the musical genre known as Banda music. It had played in a bar in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas on Friday night.

The people writing these outrageous and awful posts, SERIOUSLY cannot care about their own lives. Or either they are the bravest or stupidest idiots on the planet. Spewing that crap is going to come right back around and take a big 'ol KARMA chunk out of your a$$, bellieve that. I wouldn't want to be ANYWHERE around when it happens, and it will. If not to you, then to someone you know, and/or care about, but it WILL get you in some way. So you may as well sit back and get ready.

Terrible tragedy.
It's laughable when folks react to others insensitive remarks, then turn around and make racist remarks themselves. Silly, mindless hypocrites abound.
