GUADALUPE COUNTY, NM — Authorities have confirmed at least one fatality following a multi-vehicle accident that occurred Monday, east of Santa Rosa, reports KOAT.

The crash happened on westbound Interstate 40 at mile marker 291, near Cuervo.

An investigation remains underway, but New Mexico State Police indicated that a number of other people were injured. The exact number of those hurt and the extent of their injuries has not been disclosed.

All westbound lanes of I-40 were shut down shortly before 11:00 a.m.

New Mexico Department of Transportation officials reported severe winter weather in the area the same day, which also forced a partial closure of I-25 at the Colorado border, but it’s unclear what other factors may have caused the wreck.
