The woman accused of drinking before crashing into an Albuquerque Police Department cruiser could soon be released from jail.
Officer Nathan Sweeten was investigating a crash on eastbound I-40 at Louisiana Sunday morning when 21-year-old Kyla Martinez crashed into him.
In court Judge Brett Loveless denied the state’s request to keep Martinez behind bars until trial, but called the situation extremely dangerous. Jail records from Friday morning show Martinez is still in custody.
Police say Martinez admitted to drinking at a downtown club before driving.
