New Mexico State Police informed that they are investigating a deadly two-vehicle crash that happened on the frontage road of Interstate 25 near milepost 341 south of Las Vegas, N.M. The crash happened on October 23, at around 5:30 p.m.
According to New Mexico State Police’s first investigation, a 1995 Chevy pickup operated by eighty-year-old Jose Agustin Lucero was going south on Interstate 25 Frontage Road 2137 when it crossed over the center line and directly crashed with a tow truck.
Lucero was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The driver and passenger of the tow truck were transported to local hospitals by their family members. Their condition isn’t known at this moment. The police continue investigating the two-vehicle crash.
Direct collisions are putting drivers and passengers at high risk of deadly outcomes. Even if there are survivors in such crashes, the injuries will be severe.
Being involved in such an accident can change your life forever. Long medical treatments, long time for recovery, lost wages, even losing your earning capability are just a few of the outcomes of auto accident injuries.
It’s essential that you seek medical help as soon as possible. While you’re recovering, make sure you contact a car accident attorney. New Mexico is a fault state; this means if the other party was responsible for the accident, their insurance company will have to cover the fees for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and damages.
Don’t let time pass by and act fast. Your lawyer will guide you into the legal process and will help you file a lawsuit. They won’t accept any low settlements, which is a good thing for you.
