SUNLAND PARK, NM (KTSM) — A 32-year-old El Paso woman is dead following a four-vehicle crash in Santa Teresa Saturday night.

New Mexico State Police say it happened around 10:50 p.m. Saturday near McNutt and Pete Domenici Highway (Artcraft Road) when a 2015 Ford Super Duty truck traveling north on McNutt crossed the center median, hitting three other vehicles head-on.

Six people were transported from the scene with injuries and 32-year-old Danielle Perez of El Paso was pronounced dead at the scene according to New Mexico State Police.

New Mexico State Police was aided by Sunland Park Police with traffic control. The intersection was reopened to traffic around 8 a.m. Sunday morning.

According to NMSP, their crash reconstruction unit has been activated to assist in the investigation. Many details are still unknown and under investigation.

Additional information will be available at the conclusion of NMSP’s investigation.

The Santa Teresa crash is the fourth major crash in and around the El Paso area in the last 24-hours. On Friday, EPPD responded to a crash involving a motorcyclist with life-threatening injuries on Gateway East and Zaragoza.

Saturday morning, EPPD investigated a deadly crash on Doniphan Drive and Country Club Road in the Upper Valley. Just hours later, Special Traffic Investigators were called to the scene of a multiple-vehicle crash involving a motorcycle. One person was also transported from that crash with potentially life-threatening injuries.
