Charges are pending against an ATV passenger after the ATV and a pickup truck crashed in a desert area in Santa Teresa near the intersection of Airport Road and McNutt Road.
It happened at about 4:30PM Tuesday.
Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Deputies said three passengers on the ATV were ejected including a 14-year-old, a two-year-old, and a woman. The sheriff’s department said the woman is the children’s mother.
The 14-year-old was driving. Both the teenage and the mother were taken to an El Paso-area hospital.
Deputies don’t believe any of the riders were wearing helmets.
