Santa Fe, NM - Two-Truck Accident Ends in Rollover & Injuries
Santa Fe, NM (September 07, 2019) - Shortly before 11:00 in the morning on Saturday, September 7, two trucks were involved in an accident at the intersection of West Barcelona Road and Don Gaspar Avenue.
The collision caused one of the trucks, a white Mazda pick-up, to roll over. The Mazda came to rest in such a way that the driver was trapped inside.
Initial reports do seem to indicate that he was conscious when emergency crews arrived to extricate him from his vehicle. The 42-year old man was transported to a local medical facility. His condition was listed as stable.
A second Nissan truck, this one with license plates revealing a driver from Illinois, was also involved. The driver has not yet been identified nor has his medical condition been released.
Drugs or alcohol are not being considered as factors in the crash.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Santa Fe
An average of 1.25 million people are needlessly killed every year as they die from injuries that they received when they were injured in a vehicle collision. That comes out to an average of about 3,300 fatalities daily and, according to recent research, the lion’s share of those victims will clock it at less than 40 years of age. Working backward from that, the yearly number of accident victims who were lucky enough to walk away with their lives, statistics tell us that about 30 million of those survivors will suffer some degree of any untold number of physical injuries.
Luckily, the state of New Mexico has laws in place to see to it that the motorists who were not deemed liable for the accident are qualified to file a legal claim for financial compensation for any injuries and other losses that they suffered as a result of the incident.
