The Sheriff's Office says 63-year-old Diane Schuler of Placitas was killed and the drivers of the two vehicles suffered non-life threatening injuries in the Friday crash.

Lt. Keith Elder said investigators determined that the speedometer of a northbound vehicle driven by 67-year-old Robert Rutschman of Las Vegas was stuck at 20 miles an hour over the posted speed before the collision with a southbound vehicle driven by 66-year-old Craig Gibbs of Placitas.

Schuler was a passenger in Gibbs' vehicle.
