News

Sandoval County deputies are investigating a fatal crash on I-25 southbound near Algodones. 

Deputies say Tuesday night a man pulled over along the interstate around Algondones and Highway 550 to change his tire when another man pulled over to help.

That’s when a vehicle driven by 31-year-old Christie Noriega hit both of them.

Both men died on scene.

Noriega also had her 2-year-old son in the car with her.

When deputies questioned Noriega she denied drinking but deputies say they found a miniature bottle of alcohol in the car and she smelled of liquor and had slurred speech.

Deputies have not released the names of the men killed.
