News: 1 dead, 1 injured in truck accident in Bernalillo County

ALBUQUERQUE, NM - The New Mexico State Police are investigating a fatal truck accident that occurred Sunday afternoon in Albuquerque.

The incident involving a 2021 Freightliner commercial motor vehicle happened on Interstate 40 near mile marker 153 at about 12:10 p.m, according to an NMSP news release.

Investigators said a 42-year-old woman was driving the truck eastbound on I-40 when it left the roadway and rolled, ejecting both the driver and passenger.

The passenger, 39-year-old Eric Remaly of San Bernardino, California, was pronounced dead at the scene.  The driver was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening.

State police said it did not appear that seat belts had been properly utilized, and added that alcohol was apparently not a contributing factor in the crash.
