They say 75-year-old Roy Edwards of Silver City and 23-year-old Alexis Chavez of Deming both were pronounced dead at the scene of Tuesday afternoon's crash.

State Police say a passenger car was traveling on State Road 26 following behind a van that was pulling a flatbed trailer with a vehicle on it.

The passenger car began to pass the van when it collided head-on with a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction, killing both drivers.

State Police say alcohol doesn't appear to be a contributing factor to the crash and seat belts appear to have been properly utilized.

They say the crash remains under investigation.
