ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office announced Sandia Crest Road reopened Friday.

The road was closed while police investigated a fatal rollover crash and crews cleared the road, following a winter storm Wednesday.

The crash occurred Wednesday. One person was injured and an MDC sergeant was killed after their vehicle rolled off the side of the road and fell 100 feet down the side of the mountain.

Search and recovery efforts were delayed to Thursday due to the storm.
