Tucumcari, NM (November 14, 2022) - Two were killed after a collision involving a motor vehicle and a train in the Tucumcari area on Friday, November 4. 

The deadly crash was reported at the corner of US-54 and Quay County Road Ad at around 7 p.m. A 2007 Toyota Camry driven by 30-year-old Abraham Riquiac-Gonzalez was traveling north. It was hit by a westbound freight train as the vehicle crossed some railroad tracks near the scene. 

The driver and his passenger, 38-year-old Pedro Jimon, were both killed in the crash. No other injuries were reported in the accident. 

An ongoing investigation into the cause of the accident is in progress. 

We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the families of Abraham Riquiac-Gonzalez and Pedro Jimon at this time.

Fatal Train Accidents in New Mexico

Tucumcari, NM - Two Killed in Crash with Train at US-54 & Quay County Rd AdAccording to the US Department of Transportation, there are around 5,800 train-car collisions every year, the majority of which happen near railroad crossings. These crashes are responsible for nearly 600 fatalities and 2,300 injuries. More than half of fatal train accidents occur at railroad crossings without active safety systems.

The grief and incomprehensibility of losing a loved one on your own is difficult to understand. The financial stability of your family may also be impacted by the death of a family member. Trying to support your family, make ends meet, and grieve the loss of a loved one all at once may prove to be too much for a survivor.
