Police say in southern New Mexico say a tractor-trailer hit and killed two people on the shoulder of Interstate 10 near Lordsburg.
Authorities say the rig was traveling east on I-10 early Thursday when it veered onto the right shoulder of the highway and crashed into two people who were standing outside a pickup truck.
Both people were pronounced dead at the scene. Their identities were being withheld until family could be notified.
The truck driver was hospitalized with chest pains.
