EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – A man on a motorcycle was killed in a crash Saturday afternoon south of Las Cruces.

The New Mexico State Police said Shane G. Jaramillo, 46, was going west on SR 192 and tried to pass traffic from behind. His 2017 Indian Motorcycle hit a westbound 1997 Chevy that was turning onto a private road. The crash happened at about 3:30 p.m.

Jaramillo was dead at the scene and the driver of the Chevy was uninjured.

“Alcohol does not appear to be a contributing factor in the crash,” police said in a news release. “Jaramillo was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.”

The crash is still under investigation.
