APD investigating three pedestrian crashes, two fatal

Albuquerque police said they were investigating a fatal crash involving a pedestrian near Coors and Iliff NW on Friday, but no other details have been released.

Another pedestrian is in critical condition after she was struck by a vehicle while crossing Central at Mesilla NE Sunday, police spokeswoman Rebecca Atkins wrote in an email Monday.

“The vehicle fled the scene after the crash and is unknown at this time,” Atkins said. “The female was taken to UNM Hospital where she remains in critical condition. This remains an ongoing investigation.”

On Monday, APD’s Motors Unit was called to a fatal vehicle crash involving a pedestrian just before 9 p.m. at Central and Valencia NE, where there was no crosswalk, an email from Atkins says.

“The vehicle was westbound on Central in the left lane where he struck the pedestrian. Speed and alcohol do not appear to be a factor in this crash,” Atkins wrote. “The pedestrian was transported to the hospital where he later died as a result of the crash.”
