ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Albuquerque woman was killed Sunday evening after a truck pulled out in front of the motorcycle she was driving near Española.
Eloise Armijo, 53, was fatally injured in the crash, New Mexico State Police said Monday. She died at a hospital in Española.
Friends on Monday said she was a former Albuquerque police and Albuquerque Public Schools police officer.
“She was very patriotic, loved law enforcement. She was a veteran,” her friend Alberta Lucero de Guerin said.
Police said she was traveling south on State Road 68 when a truck pulled out in front of her at the intersection of State Road 74 north of Española.
The truck, a newer model silver or gray GMC or Chevrolet truck, fled the scene with a broken passenger side window. Police are seeking information about that driver.
