Maljamar, NM (May 17, 2022) - Two people were left with fatal injuries following a vehicle collision outside of Maljamar on Tuesday evening. The deadly crash took place on NM-529 on Tuesday, May 17. 

It was reported that the driver of a 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan was headed westbound on the highway when they crossed the centerline. The Dodge crashed head-on with an oncoming tractor-trailer. Both drivers suffered fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene. 

The operator of the semi was later identified as 42-year-old Juan S. Martinez of Hobbs. The identity of the other victim has not yet been released. 

No further information has been made public at this time. An investigation into the cause of the accident is underway. 

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

Deadly Head-On Collisions in New Mexico

Maljamar, NM - Juan Martinez Dies in Head-On Crash on NM-529Head-on crashes are one of the most lethal types of traffic accidents. Statistics show that these collisions have a mortality rate of over 58 percent. Despite accounting for less than 2% of all recorded vehicle accidents, head-on collisions account for more than 10% of all road fatalities each year. Even at low speeds, swerving into oncoming traffic puts you at risk of colliding head-on with another vehicle.

When a loved one dies as a consequence of another party's carelessness, wrongful death lawsuits are brought with the purpose of compensating the remaining family members. Unfortunately, getting this reward is usually simpler said than done. The fact that the victim died does not exonerate the offender of blame. After a deadly accident, insurance firms for individuals who are at fault usually attempt to transfer responsibility. Instead of rewarding the deceased's family members after a tragic vehicle accident, the offender should reimburse the family members to help with accident-related expenditures. You'll need the assistance of an Albuquerque wrongful death lawyer who has handled cases similar to yours.
