A man died and a female was hospitalized after a single vehicle rollover accident on Interstate 25 near Los Lunas on Saturday.
Manuel Hernandez, 56, died in the crash. His passenger Virginia Rodriguez, 30, was taken to an Albuquerque hospital. Both people are from El Paso, Tex.
Los Lunas police closed I-25 between Los Lunas and Belen for almost six hours as crews cleaned up the scene. The roadway is now back open.
Police said Hernandez lost control of a Ford F-150 pickup truck and swerved onto the median. He over corrected and the truck rolled over.
It's unclear if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
