NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – New Mexico State Police are investigating a double fatal crash involving the Rail Runner train and a vehicle on July 24. Officials say the crash occurred around 11:16 a.m. July 24, on NM-313 near milepost 15 by San Felipe Pueblo.

NMSP has identified the two people who died in the fatal crash as 30-year-old Derrick Tenorio and a six-year-old female child. Officials say a 2014 Jeep Cherokee, driven by Tenorio was driving east on a private road and attempted to cross the railroad. The Jeep was struck on the driver’s side by the Rail Runner train which was traveling southbound. NMSP says both Tenorio and the child were pronounced dead on scene by the Office of the Medical Investigator.

Rio Metro says that the crossing was a private one, so the standard arms or gates are not there. Under Federal Law, private crossings must at least have signs and signal lights, but don’t need arms or gates.
