New Mexico State Police have arrested a Lordsburg man accused of fatally striking a construction worker with his vehicle and fleeing the scene of the crash in Luna County.

Police say Carl Lee Johnson, 22, was cleaning debris from Interstate 10 near Deming on Thursday morning when Raymond Anthony Saucedo, 23, struck him with his Ford van.

“For reasons still under investigation, Saucedo hit Johnson with his vehicle and then fled the scene,” a New Mexico State Police news release states. “Mr. Johnson suffered fatal injuries in the crash and was pronounced deceased on the scene by the Office of the Medical Investigator.”

State Police officers were dispatched to the call around 6:30 a.m. An officer caught up with Saucedo and conducted a traffic stop before Saucedo was arrested, according to the release.

Saucedo is charged with leaving the scene of a fatal crash, failure to give aid in a crash causing great bodily harm or death, and failure to give immediate notice of a crash.

The New Mexico State Police Crash Reconstruction Unit continues to investigate.
