Nara Visa, NM (May 18, 2022) - A two-vehicle accident outside of Nara Visa on Sunday morning, May 15, left one person dead and another injured. The deadly crash was reported on US-54 at around 9:32 a.m. 

Local reports revealed that a 2022 Freightliner Commercial Motor Vehicle was headed east on the highway when the operator crossed the centerline. The CMV reportedly sideswiped an oncoming 2019 Volvo traveling westbound. The impact caused the Volvo to leave the roadway and overturn. 

The driver of the Volvo suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. The deceased party was later identified as 41-year-old Roger Craghead of Missouri. The truck driver was injured and taken to a local hospital. 

An ongoing investigation into the cause of the deadly crash is underway. 

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