SANTA FE, NM - The Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a man who appeared to have been struck by a vehicle, reports the Santa Fe New Mexican.

The victim, a man about 40 years of age, was found dead Thursday morning near 811 Monarch Mountain Mine, a remote road west of Santa Fe.  His identity was not immediately released.

His body was discovered by deputies from the sheriff's office who were called to the scene at about 8:31 a.m.  It was not yet clear whether the man had been struck by the vehicle before or after he died.

A preliminary investigation did not indicate any signs of foul play, the sheriff's office said.
