Artesia, NM (October 13, 2019) – Around 6:30 a.m. this morning, the New Mexico State Police responded to a truck accident at an intersection in Artesia.
According to police, the crash took place at the intersection of U.S. Highway 285 and Four Dinkus Road. At the time, the driver of a semi-truck collided with a small Chevrolet Lumina driven by a 28-year-old man.
