Santa Fe County is still mourning the death of Democratic Party leader Susan Popovich.
Susan Popovich was a well-known leader in the community and her death shocked her voters and colleagues alike. Although she was only the Democrat party leader since March, she made her mark in the community and everyone loved her. Popovich died in a car crash after her vehicle collided with a semi-truck. Popovich was driving her Mazda southbound on U.S 285. As she entered the intersection near Avenida Vista Grande, her car was struck by semi also traveling south. As with most crashes involving a semi, Popovich’s vehicle didn’t’ stand a chance and the results were devastating,
Police and paramedics arrived at the scene to block off the road and treat injuries. However, they were not able to save Popovich. The driver of the semi remained at the crash until authorities arrived. He was questioned by officers, but that was not released to the public. As of now, the driver of the semi was not arrested or cited at the scene. This is subject to change as the investigation can yield further details. Police will have to obtain the data from both vehicles in order to reconstruct the accident down to the smallest detail. Since Popovich was so popular, the investigation is working overtime to wrap up.
We offer our condolences to the family of Susan Popovich and all of those whose lives she affected. We should take this time to reflect on her legacy and ask ourselves how can we honor her best.
