ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Officers are responding to an accident on I-40 eastbound at San Mateo.
The right lane and slow lane have been closed in the area. Three lanes remain open, but police say traffic is still congested. Drivers should expect delays.
Simon Drobik of APD says the preliminary investigation suggests the driver of one of the vehicles had a medical emergency – possibly a heart attack – and was taken to the hospital after the crash.
The driver of the other vehicle drove away after being cleared by rescue.
