Albuquerque Police Department Motors Unit responded to a fatal car crash early Friday morning near Unser and Paradise.
Around 3 a.m., the Motors Unit was called out to the crash. During its investigation, it was determined that a blue BMW was driving south on Unser in the northbound lane while a silver Chevrolet Silverado was driving north on Unser. The truck changed lanes to avoid the BMW but the BMW then attempted to correct its lane which caused the Silverado to make another lane change back into his correct lane when the crash occurred. This was a head-on crash.
The driver of the BMW was pronounced decease on scene by Albuquerque Fire and Rescue and the driver of the Silverado was transported for chest pains to UNM Hospital. The Silverado driver was screened by a DWI Officer and was found to not be driving under the influence. The investigation is ongoing and it is unknown if alcohol was a factor for the crash. APD said that speed and other improper driving by the BMW was a factor for the crash. There is no video available for this remote section of Unser Blvd. At this time no charges are pending.
