DEMING, N.M. (KTSM) — Two people were killed on Tuesday morning after the vehicle they were in rolled over on Interstate 10 near Deming, N.M., according to New Mexico State Police.

Authorities said two passengers in the vehicle, 70-year-old Revy Mitchell from Texas and 63-year-old Marvin Maxey from Arkansas, were ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.

The five others — including the driver, a 70-year-old woman from Texas, a 67-year-old woman from Nevada, a 28-year-old woman from Texas and an 18-year-old man from Texas — were taken to area hospitals by ambulance and air.

An investigation found that a 36-year-old woman from Texas was driving a 2006 Ford Expedition SUV on I-10 East when one of the vehicle’s rear tires had a blowout, causing the vehicle to roll.

NMSP said alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash and seat belts appear to have not been used. The crash is still under investigation.
