A 16-year-old girl is dead following a rollover crash along a river levee near Hatch, NM Monday evening.
Syndy Silva, 16, was killed when the 2004 Chevrolet pickup truck she was driving veered off the roadway near off B.B. Romig along the northwest river levee off and overcorrected around 7 p.m. Monday night. Her truck then rolled several times according to Doña Ana County Sheriff’s investigators.
Silva was the only person inside the truck at the time of the crash and she was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators say Silva was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and speed is a suspected factor in the rollover.
