Ojo Caliente, NM (September 7, 2019) – This past week around 10:30 p.m., State Police responded to the scene of a head-on collision that led to a fatality on US Highway 285.
At the time, a 25-year-old named Veronica Nicole Trujillo was driving erratically on the highway when police said that she suddenly made a U-turn in the middle of the road. She then drove down another lane headed in the wrong direction, colliding immediately with a northbound vehicle.
