ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- New Mexico State Police officers are looking into two fatal car crashes from Tuesday, one in Luna County and the other in Roosevelt County.
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.
