ALBUQUERQUE, NM — Two people and a dog died early Monday as a result of two different pedestrian crashes in Albuquerque, reports KRQE.

The first incident occurred at Montgomery Boulevard and Pennsylvania Street, in the city’s Stardust Skies North neighborhood, at about 1:00 a.m.

Albuquerque Police said while the first pedestrian was crossing Montgomery Boulevard in a marked crosswalk, an investigation indicates they were traveling against the signal. At one point, they were hit by a vehicle that was passing on a green light.

At 5:45 a.m., officers were called to the scene of a pedestrian crash in the city’s Paradise Hills Civic area. Authorities said a pedestrian appeared to have been kneeling at the intersection of Unser Boulevard and Paradise Boulevard to pick up his dog when they were both fatally hit by a vehicle.

At this time, the incidents remain under investigation, but pedestrian error is believed to have been the cause in both. The APD said speed and alcohol are not suspected factors in either.
