Albuquerque Police say carjacking suspects caused serious crash

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police responded to a crash that happened early Saturday morning in northeast Albuquerque.

Albuquerque Police Officers say multiple suspects carjacked someone at gunpoint at Coors and Gonzales.

“Let me tell you the truth, I don’t feel safe,” said one resident in the area who wanted to remain anonymous.

Neighbors said crimes like carjackings aren’t rare in the neighborhood.

“Quite often. I think more than normal for a neighborhood,” he said.

Police say the suspect ran a red light going southbound on Eubank in northeast Albuquerque before crashing into a car going westbound on Menaul. The crash sent at least one victim to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The car was totaled with debris everywhere.

Police are not currently releasing information about those suspects.

“I do know that two of the individuals in the suspect vehicle did match the descriptions from the offenders in the carjacking,” said Officer Andrew Henry.

None of the suspects were seriously injured.
