Albuquerque, NM (May 22, 2023) – On Sunday, May 21, a woman from Farmington died as a result of a semi-truck accident in the Albuquerque area.
At roughly 2 p.m., the fatal collision was reported on Interstate 40 WB close to mile marker 160. According to initial reports, a 2019 Toyota was traveling in bad weather when it skidded and struck a 2008 Ford pickup truck being operated by Farmington resident 64-year-old Flora Garcia. The Ford then spun counter-clockwise before running into an 18-wheeler.
Garcia suffered fatal injuries, and she was later pronounced dead by responding emergency personnel. There were no additional reported injuries resulting from the crash. Alcohol is not believed to have contributed to the collision.
The cause of the collision is the subject of an ongoing investigation.
We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
