ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — State Police investigating whether alcohol was a factor in I-25 wreck near Tramway.
James Berry, who was taken to the hospital in critical condition Sunday evening after a single-vehicle rollover on Interstate 25 near the Tramway exit, has died, KOAT-TV is reporting.
Berry was a passenger in the front seat of a Hyundai sedan driven by 32-year-old Rashaad Clayton when Clayton lost control and flipped the car at least once on northbound I-25 just north of Tramway around 6:15 p.m. Sunday, the Albuquerque Journal reported this morning.
Berry was listed in critical condition last night at University of New Mexico Hospital having suffered extensive head injuries, the Journal reported.
Two passengers in the back seat were ejected from the car, and both also were taken along with the driver to UNM Hospital, State Police told the Journal.
Clayton and one of the passengers were treated and released, while the other passenger was in stable condition Sunday night, the Journal said.
Beer cans were found all over the vehicle and near the accident scene, State Police Sgt. Andrew Tingwall told the Journal.
"Charges against the driver would be pending the outcome of the investigation," Tingwall said.
Northbound lanes of I-25 were closed for several hours following the wreck.
