Belen police say a man was killed early Saturday when his fiancée overcorrected the vehicle they were riding in and it flipped several times.

The crash took place on I-25 near the Belen exit.

Belen Police Chief Dan Robb identified the victim as 40-year-old Santiago Sanchez. Robb said the man's fiancée was trying to pass another car when she lost control of the vehicle.

Police do not suspect alcohol to be involved in the crash, but they said speed was a factor and Sanchez may not have been wearing a seatbelt.
