BCSO: Pedestrian killed while crossing Coors

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A pedestrian was killed while crossing Coors north of Gun Club with two other people Tuesday night, according to a spokeswoman for the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office.

Felicia Romero said a Ford F250 pickup truck was traveling southbound on Coors as three people wearing dark clothing crossed the street near the Countryside mobile home park around 10 p.m. The truck struck one of them.

“All three subjects were wearing dark clothes,” Romero said. “The driver was unable to see the subjects until it was too late to avoid striking one pedestrian.”

She said the pedestrian was hit in the middle of the second lane of southbound Coors. She said she could not release the gender of the person killed because it is an ongoing investigation.

“Rescue personnel attempted o revive the pedestrian, but were unsuccessful,” Romero said.

She said deputies have not been able to notify the next of kin and the investigation is ongoing, but alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
