New Mexico State Police: 2 killed in cross-over wreck


GRANTS, N.M. (AP) – Authorities say two people were killed in a collision after another driver’s car crossed the median of Interstate 40 near Grants.

State Police Sgt. Elizabeth Armijo says a driver and passenger in a westbound vehicle that collided with the cross-over car were killed in the wreck Tuesday night.

Armijo says police are investigating evidence that the driver of the cross-over car was under the influence at the time of the crash.
