Las Cruces, NM (March 26, 2020) – A police officer in Las Cruces was hospitalized following a collision with a wrong-way driver. Officials have now reported on the crash that happened earlier this month along I-25.
According to authorities, officer Jacqueline Hernandez was in a police cruiser when her vehicle was struck by a car that was traveling south in the northbound lanes of the interstate. The operator, later identified as Brenda Alonzo Martinez was pulled over by another officer further down the roadway.
Hernandez was transported to a nearby hospital to be treated for her injuries. Martinez was ultimately arrested for DUI.
Our thoughts are with officer Jacqueline Hernandez and her family at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
