Passenger in fatal crash remains in hospital

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The passenger in a fatal motorcycle crash that shut down I-40 for hours Saturday is still in critical condition.

There’s still no word if the driver of the truck, who caused the crash, will face charges.

APD says the driver stopped in the middle of I-40 near 6th Street after a ladder fell off his truck Saturday afternoon.

The motorcycle ran over the ladder and crashed into the back of the truck. The motorcyclist died.

His passenger, who police say a woman, is at UNM Hospital in critical condition. She’s expected to survive.

The interstate was shut down for about three hours. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
