NewsChannel 9 just got word into our newsroom that a pair of car accidents on Highway 70 eastbound is forcing traffic to be diverted onto Bataan Memorial East at the Sonoma Ranch Boulevard exit.
Las Cruces Police and New Mexico State Police are at the scene.
We haven't gotten any word on the extent of the crashes or possible injuries.
Police are asking that motorists headed eastbound from Las Cruces take Bataan Memorial East until Highway 70 is re-opened.
