A man was airlifted to University Medical Center in El Paso after he flipped his Chevy Silverado pickup truck into an arroyo. 

A male passenger in the truck was also transported to UMC with serious injuries.

The wreck happened at approximately 11:00p.m. Sunday on Washington St. and 7th St. near the New Mexico state line.

According to Anthony Police, the driver was speeding on Washington St. when the road reached a dead end, and the truck jumped a 4-5 ft. mound of dirt before it landed in the arroyo.

Investigators suspect both speed and alcohol are factors in the crash. 

Police have not identified the men, but said they are believed to be in their late 20's.
