A woman is dead and two men are in critical condition following a two-vehicle crash early Thursday morning in Northeast Albuquerque.

Albuquerque police spokeswoman Rebecca Atkins said speed was a factor in the crash and “it is unknown” if alcohol was a factor.

Police responded to the crash sometime before 3:45 a.m. at the intersection of Menaul and Carlisle.

Atkins said a witness told police the driver of a Honda Civic was headed south on Carlisle “at a high rate of speed” and ran a red light, crashing into the Subaru Forester, which was headed west on Menaul.

She said both drivers were taken to the hospital in critical condition and a woman in the Forester died at the scene. Atkins said police found a handgun inside the Subaru Forester and the car came back as stolen.

“This is an ongoing investigation. Updates will be provided as they are available,” She said.
