ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal crash involving three motorcyclists in southwest Albuquerque early Monday morning. According to BCSO, one rider died and two other riders were transported to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. The crash happened on Dennis Chavez between Atrisco Vista and 118th.

At this time it’s unclear what led up to the crash. However, BCSO says rider inexperience may have played a factor in the crash. They also say one of the riders appeared to be intoxicated, but investigators do not believe that was the cause of the crash. The crash is still under investigation.
