Person fatally struck by driver in NE ABQ

Authorities say a person is dead after running in front of a pickup truck and being hit Friday night in Northeast Albuquerque.

Rebecca Atkins, an Albuquerque Police Department spokeswoman, said speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash and the truck had a green light at the time.

Atkins said police responded sometime before 9 p.m. to the fatal crash at Spain and Wyoming NE. The pedestrian died at the scene.

A witness, who caught the crash on a dash camera, told police the person “ran out in front of the truck.”

Atkins said the passenger initially told police she was driving at the time, but the man in the truck later admitted he was driving and “had lied originally because his driver’s license is revoked.”

Atkins said both people passed sobriety tests.
