Officials say the crash at NM 550 and NM 313 actually involved a pickup pulling a trailer and a commercial vehicle pulling half of a mobile home.

No motorcycle was involved.

The commercial vehicle pulling the mobile home apparently hit electrical cables installed for temporary traffic lights at the intersection, pulling down a power pole, which fell on the cab of the pickup truck.

The driver of the pickup was killed.

 

Correction: An earlier version of this post stated that two people had been killed in the accident. Only one person was killed.


 

NM 550 in Bernalillo is closed in all directions at NM 313 because of a fatal crash involving a motorcycle.

It is unclear which agency is investigating, but motorists should avoid the area.
