Albuquerque, NM (February 2, 2020) - Officials from the Albuquerque Police Department were at the scene of a fatal crash on the west side of the city. The accident occurred on Friday night, January 31st, near the intersection of I-40 and 98th Street. Initial reports revealed that one person was killed and another injured in the collision. 

The crash involved two vehicles, according to preliminary reports. The accident took place when one vehicle was making a turn onto the I-40 WB frontage road from 98th Street and the other vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed collided with the first vehicle. One of the drivers was killed, and the other was transported to a nearby medical facility. 

An investigation into the crash is currently in progress. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.

Left-Turn Crashes in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - UPDATE: 1 Killed, 1 Injured at I-40 & 98th StLeft turns are a critical pre-crash event, according to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Association. Left-hand turns are involved in nearly 22.2 percent of all reported collisions. These crashes usually happen at intersections when drivers fail to yield the right-of-way. 

An astounding 61 percent of intersection crashes involve drivers making left turns. This often results in a T-bone crash, where a vehicle is hit directly on its side by the front of another car. Injured parties should consult with a qualified New Mexico car crash lawyer to discuss legal options.
