The New Mexico State Police is investigating a fatal rollover crash that occurred Saturday on US Highway 285 near Dexter. It was traveling north.
They are looking into why the driver, identified as 23-year-old Ethan Lilly, lost control of the vehicle. He was pronounced dead by the Office of the Medical Investigator.
Another person, a 25-year old male passenger in a 2006 Saturn, was transported to the hospital for serious injuries.
Alcohol does not appear to be a factor and officers say both were not wearing seatbelts.
