TREMENTINA, NM - The New Mexico State Police are investigating a fatal collision last week involving a motorcycle and a pickup truck.
A report by KFDA states that State Police responded to the scene July 12 on State Road 104 near milepost 52 near Trementina.
According to a preliminary investigation, a 2022 Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling behind a 2008 Dodge pickup truck as both headed east at about 12:24 p.m. The driver of the truck slowed down to turn left while approaching a driveway but the motorcyclist tried to pass on the opposite travel lane, sideswiped the pickup, and crashed.
