ALBUQUERQUE (AP) – Authorities in Albuquerque are investigating two separate collisions that each resulted in the death of a pedestrian.

Albuquerque police spokesman Daren DeAguero says a pedestrian was struck late Saturday night on Central Avenue near Dorado Place.

He says the victim was later pronounced dead at University of New Mexico Hospital. Investigators believe alcohol was not a factor.

Less than two hours earlier, a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle on I-25 just north of the Big I.

DeAguero says the victim died at the scene. The accident resulted in the temporary closure of I-25 northbound.

Police have not determined if speed or alcohol played a role in the incident.
