FARMINGTON, N.M. (KRQE) – Two women are recovering in the hospital thanks to some good Samaritans.

An 80-year-old mother and her 47-year-old daughter were driving down Highway 5-16 near Aztec when a dump truck ran them off the road and into an irrigation ditch.

A detective with the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office saw it happen and rushed to the scene where their car was submerged in water.

Paramedics who arrived shortly after helped pull both women from the car. They were taken to the hospital and are expected to recover.

The driver of the dump truck was cited.
