New Mexico State Police are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash that took place in Anthony, NM.
According to the report, a motorcycle and SUV were both traveling on Route 404 near Anthony. For an unknown reason, the two vehicles collided fatally wounding the motorcyclist. All emergency personnel rushed to the scene and arrived in a short time. Once at the scene, troopers, paramedics, and firefighters set to work. While officers conducted the investigation, firefighters sectioned off the area for safety. Paramedics went to treat the injured however, they were unable to save the motorcyclist. The condition of the occupants in the SUV was not mentioned.
Troopers at the scene obtained statements from the driver of the SUV but did not release that information. Since alcohol and speed were not mentioned in the initial report, they were likely ruled out by troopers. As of now, the driver of the SUV is not facing any criminal charges for the collision. However, the family of the motorcyclist may still file a wrongful death claim. It is unclear if the next of kin of the motorcyclist was contacted at this time.
