ALBUQUERQUE, NM – A two-vehicle crash near an intersection in Albuquerque left one of the drivers dead, New Mexico State Police said in a news release.
Police responded to the incident last Friday in the area of Jefferson Street and Menaul Boulevard at about 5:19 p.m.
According to the initial investigation, 68-year-old Adeline Mora of Albuquerque was driving a Honda sedan north on Jefferson Street. When the Honda entered the intersection with Menaul Boulevard it was hit by a Jeep Patriot SUV. A spare tire from the Honda then struck a Dodge pickup in a nearby parking lot.
Mora was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Jeep, a 34-year-old Albuquerque woman, was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. Four children in the Jeep, ages 12 to 15, were not injured. Two people in the Dodge also were not hurt.
