The blizzard that has descended upon much of the nation  Thursday has a Sandoval County Sheriff's Deputy in critical condition following a weather related car crash.

New Mexico State Department of Public Safety says that 47-year-old Sergeant Robert Baron of the Sandoval County Sheriff's Office was struck by a vehicle while conducting a weather related crash investigation at approximately 10:23 a.m. Thursday morning. The crash occured on I-25 between Albquerque and Santa Fe near the San Felipe Pueblo.

Baron is a 7 year veteran of the Sandoval County Sheriff's Office, he was taken to the University of New Mexico Hospital and is listed in critical condition.

I-25 Northbound at mile marker 290, near the San Felipe Pueblo was closed for most of the day while southbound lanes remained open. NM Department of Transportation has since re-opened I-25, but road conditions throughout northern New Mexico remain treacherous for travelers. Anyone who does not have to travel is encouraged to remain at home.
