GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.  -- Utah authorities say members of a popular Mexican music group are recovering after their tour bus was hit by a truck.

Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Scott Robertson says 13 people were hospitalized after the 10 p.m. Monday crash on Interstate 70 near Cisco, about 20 miles from the Colorado border. Robertson said Tuesday the injuries weren't life-threatening.

He says the bus was carrying members of the Mexican music group La Autentica de Jerez on their way back to Mexico from Denver. It was traveling slowly in the right lane when the truck collided with it from behind.

Two of the injured were flown to St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction. The driver of the truck wasn't injured.

Authorities don't believe drugs or alcohol was a factor in the crash.
