After Kevin Poirer was released from the Santa Fe County Detention Center on Friday night, he apparently began to walk down N.M. 14.
Around 10 p.m., according to New Mexico State Police, a truck hit the 45-year-old man from San Diego, California, and drove off.
State Police spokesman Ray Wilson on Saturday said Poirer died at Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center soon after, and authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding who is responsible. He said investigators believe a southbound 2015 Ford pickup truck was the vehicle involved in the crash.
