The Luna County crash early Tuesday morning along I-10 near mile marker 46 when an eastbound minivan drove into the median and rolled. The front-seat passenger, Joseph Henriquez of Las Cruces, was ejected and died at the scene.

Three children were in the car, and one sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are still investigating this wreck.

Then on Tuesday afternoon a van traveling north on State Road 206 in Roosevelt County crashed into the back of a semi-truck. The van's driver, 58-year-old William Hamilton Tinlin of Albuquerque, was killed. The semi-truck driver was not hurt.

Officers do not believe alcohol played a factor in the Roosevelt County collision.
