One woman has died from her injuries after a deadly crash in Las Cruces.
According to the report, Amelia, and Idalia Dominguez were driving on State Road 9 just before the collision. At the same time, an 18-wheeler was traveling towards the Dominguez’s. As they neared each other, one of the ties down restraints disengaged from the commercial and the car carrying the Dominguez’s collided with the load. The crash was severe injuring both Amelia and Idalia. Emergency personnel responded to the scene and transported those injured to University Medical Center in El Paso.
While EMTs provided care to those injured, officers conducted the investigation. Investigators were able to determine that the load came from an 18-wheeler however, they were not able to determine why. The crash is still under investigation and at this time the driver of the semi-truck has not been punished. This is likely to change in the following weeks and will update you as the story develops. Dominguez put up a courageous fight, but sadly she succumbed to her wounds. It’s unclear if the Dominguez Estate will file a death claim.
