During APD’s investigation, they learned a Lexus was traveling southbound on Carlisle approaching the stoplight at I-40 westbound. The Lexus then ran the red light and was t-boned by a four-door Hyundai.

The Hyundai had exited on the off-ramp from I-40 to Carlisle but decided to continue westbound to get back onto I-40. APD says according to the driver of the Hyundai and another witness, the Hyundai had a green light.

The driver of the Lexus had serious injuries and was transported to the University of New Mexico Hospital. The driver of the Hyundai and another occupant of the sedan were released from the scene by officers. No other information has been released at this time. However, APD says alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.
