APD: Moped driver killed in crash with truck

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police say a truck crashed into a moped Tuesday night near Central and Eubank, fatally injuring the driver of the moped.

An investigation found the moped was one of two traveling eastbound on Central Avenue, near Garcia Street, without any working lights. At that time, a white Ford pickup truck was also traveling eastbound on Central and hit the moped, pushing it “a significant distance”.

The moped driver was taken to the hospital and later succumbed to his injuries.

The second moped driver was located by Albuquerque police when they responded around 8 p.m. Tuesday. However, the driver of the truck reportedly fled the scene and couldn’t be located.

No word on if any charges are pending in this case.
