Two killed in Socorro County crash

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — State police say two people from Colorado Springs were killed in a wreck in Socorro County midday Monday.

Harlan Leroy Swanson, 94, and his passenger, Elinor Swanson, 92, were pronounced dead at the scene east of Bernardo.

In a news release late Monday, police said the Swansons collided with a semi-truck as they turned left onto U.S. 60 from northbound N.M. 304.

The 52-year-old driver of the semi-truck was transported to a hospital with unknown injuries, police said.

“Alcohol does not appear to have been a factor in the crash and seat belts appear to have been used properly,” state police said in the news release.
