One woman is dead after her pickup truck rolled over into a ditch in Socorro.
According to Socorro Police, 24 year-old Cindy Reyes was traveling east on Alameda past Nooch just after 3 o'clock this morning. They say that's when she attempted to switch from the inside to the outside lane, overcorrected to the left, slid and rolled off the road.
Investigators believe improper use of the seatbelt contributed to her death, noting that the lap belt was secure but the shoulder belt was not.
As for what caused the accident, they say speed and a wet road from rain at the time of the accident are to blame.
