Albuquerque, NM (November 13, 2021) - Someone was killed after being struck by an ambulance in Albuquerque on Friday morning, November 12. The deadly crash occurred on Interstate 40 near Coors Boulevard. 

An Albuquerque Fire Rescue ambulance was reportedly responding to a call when it hit a pedestrian on the highway. Emergency responders were called to the scene to provide aid to the injured party. 

The victim was transported to the University of New Mexico Hospital in critical condition. He was later pronounced dead at the medical facility. The identity of the deceased party has not been revealed at this time. 

An ongoing crash investigation is being handled by local authorities. 

We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Pedestrian Fatally Hit By Ambulance at I-40 & Coors BlvdPedestrians are more likely to be killed in a traffic accident because they have less protection from the full force of the impact. Pedestrians and drivers have equal rights to use the road. Unfortunately, drivers continue to be responsible for a rising number of pedestrian deaths. The number of people killed while walking is on the rise nationwide. Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a car accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Wrongful death lawsuits are intended to compensate surviving family members when the negligent actions of another party cause the death of a loved one. However, obtaining that compensation is often easier said than done. Just because the victim died, that does not mean that the at-fault party should be off the hook. The insurance companies of those at fault will often try to shift blame for a deadly crash. The defendant should instead pay compensation to the family members of the deceased after a deadly car crash in order to help with expenses associated with the accident. This can only be accomplished by partnering with an Albuquerque law firm with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims.
