One of two twin babies born prematurely after a deadly bus crash in New Mexico last month has died, according to a hospital spokesperson.

The devastating crash occurred on Aug. 30 when a semi-trailer blew a tire on heavily traveled Interstate 40 and veered into oncoming traffic, slamming into a Greyhound bus.

Christy Westerdale, who was seven months pregnant at the time, was one of many rushed to local hospitals, where she delivered twins Jordyn Rose and Joseph Wayne.

Jordyn Rose has since died, the family said on a GoFundMe page.

"It is with heavy heart that I am letting you know our little Jordyn Rose passed away on 9/6/18," an update read. "Please continue your prayers and blessings for the family. Christy, Joseph, Paityn and baby Joseph Wayne. We appreciate your kindness."

Including Jordyn Rose, nine people have died in the crash.
