2. Charges remain dismissed against an Albuquerque man accused of leading officers on a high-speed chase that ended in a crash. But the driver who police say he crashed into is now suing him. State Police say two years ago, they were chasing Eddilberto Alderete when he crashed at Carlisle and Central. Charges for the chase were dismissed because a key witness could not be interviewed on time. The key witness in the chase was Alderete’s female passenger.
