Santa Fe, NM (March 3, 2022) - An officer and a civilian lost their lives following a traffic accident in the Santa Fe area on Wednesday morning, March 2. The crash was reported on Interstate 25 near mile marker 286 at around 11:14 a.m. 

An armed man reportedly stole a vehicle with a woman inside near the Rancho Vizcaya Apartments at around 11:06 a.m. An officer attempted to stop the vehicle near the scene, but the driver attempted to evade. A high-speed pursuit ensued that ended in a crash. 

The officer and the driver of an uninvolved vehicle were killed in the accident. The kidnapped woman fled on foot and was transported to a local hospital. The suspect fled the scene and is currently being sought by authorities. 

An ongoing investigation into the deadly crash is underway. 

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

Deadly Car Crashes in New Mexico

Santa Fe, NM - Officer, Civilian Killed in Collision on I-25In New Mexico, one out of every 130 vehicle accidents results in death, according to state statistics. In New Mexico, a number of factors have been linked to serious car accidents. Driver distraction and speeding are two of the most common examples. A car accident occurs every 26 minutes on average, according to the New Mexico Department of Transportation. Every year, over 40,000 car accidents occur in New Mexico, injuring approximately 25,000 people.

When a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, wrongful death lawsuits are filed with the goal of compensating the surviving family members. On the other hand, getting that compensation is frequently easier said than done. The fact that the victim died does not absolve the perpetrator of blame. After a fatal accident, insurance companies for those who are at fault frequently try to shift blame. Instead of compensating the deceased's family members following a fatal car accident, the defendant should compensate the family members to help with accident-related expenses. Only a Santa Fe car accident attorney with extensive experience representing wrongful death victims can assist you.
