Fatal Crash on US 84 in San Miguel County

On Saturday (Oct. 6) State Police investigated a single-vehicle fatal crash which occurred on US 84 south of Las Vegas.


The preliminary investigation indicates a Dodge SUV was traveling eastbound on US 84 near mile marker 99 when the vehicle drifted into oncoming traffic. The vehicle then drifted back into the eastbound lane but the driver, Alicia M. Maldonado (24) of Albuquerque, NM, appears to have lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle rolled multiple times and Ms. Maldonado was ejected.  Ms. Maldonado sustained fatal injuries in the crash and was pronounced deceased on scene. 


Alcohol does not appear to have been a factor in this collision. This crash remains under investigation with no further information available.
