BCSO deputy injured after vehicle rear-ended on Interstate 40

CARNUEL, NM - A collision on Interstate 40 Sunday morning sent a Bernalillo County Sheriff's deputy to the hospital.

In a traffic alert issued at 11:15 a.m., the BCSO said the incident happened on I-40 eastbound at Carnuel.  Authorities said the deputy's vehicle was rear-ended by another vehicle on the interstate.  The deputy was taken to the hospital with injuries but "was expected to be okay," the sheriff's office said.

All lanes of eastbound I-40 were closed through the area.  Drivers were advised to expect delays while New Mexico State Police and deputies investigated and cleared the scene.  Should any additional information come to light, our Albuquerque car accident lawyer will update this news blog.
