  3. Fatal Crash Involving Train in Quay County

On November 4, 2022, at about 7:00 p.m., New Mexico State Police officers responded to Quay Road AD near the intersection with U.S. Highway 54 for a vehicle that had collided with a train. 


The initial investigation indicated that for unknown reasons, a 2007 Toyota Camry driven by Abraham Riquiac-Gonzalez, 30, with passenger Pedro Jimon, 38, of Clovis was traveling north on Quay Road AD, crossed the train tracks, and was struck by a westbound freight train.


Both occupants suffered fatal injuries in the collision and were pronounced deceased on the scene by the Office of the Medical Investigator.  The train engineers were not injured.


 Alcohol does not appear to have been a factor, and seatbelts appear to have been properly utilized.  This crash is under investigation by the New Mexico State Police.
