ALBUQUERQUE, NM — Deputies were called to a rollover wreck early Wednesday on Interstate 40 in far east Albuquerque, reports the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office.

The accident happened on the westbound lanes near mile marker 140, just north of Route 66 Casino Hotel, in the Rio Puerco area. BCSO officials arrived on the scene shortly before 5:47 a.m.

Few details have been provided at this time, but authorities said no one was critically injured in the event.

During the response and initial investigation, all westbound traffic was forced to get by through just a single open lane.

It remains unclear what caused the vehicle to overturn and whether another vehicle was involved.
