Dona Ana County- On July 27, 2013, at approximately 3:56 a.m.; New Mexico State Police were dispatched to State Road 137, mile post 2, near the Santa Teresa Port of Entry regarding a single vehicle roll over. The female driver of the vehicle was ejected from her vehicle and died on scene.
The driver of the vehicle was identified as Briana Canales (26) of El Paso Texas. Based on the investigation, it appears as if Ms. Canales was traveling southbound when her vehicle drove off the right side of the roadway. Ms. Canales attempted to bring the vehicle back onto the roadway and over corrected. The vehicle then entered the median, lost control leading the vehicle to roll numerous times. Ms. Canales was ejected.
Unfortunately, Ms. Canales was not utilizing her seatbelt at the time of the crash.
