New Mexico State Police reported a single vehicle crash Friday afternoon on State Road 104 near Conchas, NM.
According to State Police the investigation showed that a Hyundai, driven by Robben Johnsen, 59, was traveling westbound when Johnson lost control of the vehicle and it over turned. Passenger David Burton, 59, was pronounced dead on the scene.
Albuquerque accident plaintiff’s lawyer Will Ferguson has launched his own investigation into the crash. “The driver of this vehicle is potentially responsible for the death of his passenger” says Ferguson. “If alcohol and speed prove to be factors, as suspected, the liability in this case will increase. New Mexico law is very stringent in alcohol-related accidents. Also, there may be roadway maintenance issues involved, in this and in any single-vehicle wreck.” Ferguson will continue to monitor the details of this crash as they become available.
