Eastbound Menaul reopened after fatal motorcycle crash

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Traffic is flowing on eastbound Menaul again after the street was shuttered Thursday afternoon following a fatal motorcycle crash, according to a police spokesman.

Officer Daren DeAguero said the crash occurred at Menaul and Cardenas NE, near San Pedro NE, around 4:30 p.m. when a motorcycle struck the side of a pickup truck.

He said the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet but sustained fatal injuries and pronounced dead at the scene.

“Alcohol and speed were not contributing factors in this crash,” DeAguero said.
