Doña Ana County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a single-vehicle rollover just after 1 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. The driver of the vehicle, Louis Gariano, was killed in the crash.
Gariano, 57, was driving north on County Road D-66 near Jornada Road when he reportedly lost control of his Isuzu Trooper, causing it to leave the roadway.
Deputies say speed and alcohol appear to be factors in the crash. Gariano was reportedly also not wearing a seat belt.
One other person who was in the vehicle at the time of the crash was reportedly not injured.
