FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) – Police in New Mexico say a woman was intoxicated when she fell while car surfing and died.

Detective Lt. Kyle Lincoln with the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office tells The Daily Times of Farmington that Wilberta Becenti was standing on top of the car Sunday morning while a driver rode on rough dirt roads.

Lincoln says Becenti was intoxicated at the time. Investigators haven’t determined whether the driver was also intoxicated. No charges have been filed.

The Daily Times reports Becenti was 23, but an online obituary lists her age as 21. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
