........................................................................................................................................................................................

A 18-year-old Cuba, N.M. man died Wednesday of injuries suffered in a rollover accident in Sandoval County late Tuesday, State Police said.

Kathan Bridge was northbound on County Road 11 about three miles south of Cuba at about 10 p.m. Tuesday when his 2003 Mazda sedan veered onto the west shoulder of the road.

The car went into a broadside skid for about 370 feet and overturned, according to a State Police email advisory. Bridge, who was driving, was ejected from the car. Two other male passengers , 18 and 16 years old, we’re also in the car but sustained only minor injuries, the advisory said.

Bridge was flown to University Hospital in critical condition. He died at about 5 p.m. Wednesday, the advisory said. Alcohol was not a factor, it said. Bridge was not using his seatbelt.
