The Albuquerque Journal reported Saturday that Albuquerque police officers were involved in 66 crashes in March. Police Oversight Board Member Leonard Waites says concerns on issue have been increasing for eight months.

Officer Johnathan McDonnell's fatal crash in March that led to the deaths of two children added to the concerns. The board is looking to organizing the data so they can see if some officers are involved in crashes than other. They also want to compare the number of Albuquerque police crashes with other departments.

Police officials are expected to make a presentation on the issue at the board's June meeting.
