Driver in hospital after crash on notorious New Mexico highway

New Mexico

Another nasty crash happened Tuesday on a notorious southeastern New Mexico highway. 

It happened along Highway 285 about four miles from the Texas state line. 

State Police say one driver is in critical condition, after his pickup veered across the line and plowed into a water truck. 

It’s not clear what caused him to lose control. 

The New Mexico Department of Transportation has been working with deputies to improve safety along that stretch, which has seen a run of deadly crashes.
