SANTA FE, N.M. — Two-Car Accident Leads to Rollover
A 44-year-old woman was taken to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries Tuesday morning after she was involved in a two-car accident at the intersection of Cerrillos Road and Second Street.
The accident occurred about 8:30 a.m., according to Santa Fe police Lt. Louis Carlos. He said the woman, whose name wasn’t being released because she hadn’t been cited, was driving a silver Kia eastbound on Cerrillos.
“Witnesses stated that they saw the Kia speed up to try to beat a red light when she clipped an Audi making a right-hand turn onto Cerrillos,” Carlos said.
The Kia then flipped and rolled over and ended upside down in the westbound lane of Cerrillos.
The female driver of the Audi was treated at the scene, Carlos said, and did not suffer any substantial injuries.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts. Alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the accident.
Carlos said he expected the driver of the Kia to be cited for speeding and running a red light.
SF To Reopen Train Platform, Center
Santa Fe city government and the Santa Fe Railyard Community Corporation, the nonprofit that manages the city-owned Railyard, are holding a ceremony today to announce the reopening of both the upgraded train platform at the historic Santa Fe Depot and the depot’s Santa Fe Visitors Center and to mark the fourth anniversary of Rail Runner Express commuter rail service.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 11 a.m.
The platform’s brickwork hadn’t been redone since 1909. The renovated depot will include modern drainage and a radiant snow-melt system.
Total cost of the project to date is $250,000, and an anticipated additional $115,000 will be required to install gas-fired boilers and pumps to circulate the heated glycol under the platform.
