SFCSO Reports Fatality In Crash On Main Hill Road

Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office PIO Juan Ríos

Staff Report

Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Juan Ríos said this evening that one person succumbed to injuries sustained in a vehicle accident involving a car and a semi-tractor trailer this afternoon at Anderson Overlook on the Main Hill Road.

A second person in the car was transported to Los Alamos Medical Center with unknown injuries, Ríos said, adding that the driver of the semi-tractor trailer does not appear to have sustained any injuries.

Ríos told the Los Alamos Daily Post that the accident occurred at approximately 1:30 p.m. today and no citations have been issued as accident investigators are still working the scene. They had to suspend their investigation for a time early this evening due to heavy rain, but have returned to continue their investigation, he said.

The name of the individual who died in this accident is being withheld pending notification of relatives.

Ríos said additional information will likely be released early next week.
