An early morning rollover crash on U.S. 284/85 north of Pojoaque killed three passengers Wednesday, the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office said.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Juan Ríos said deputies responded around 3:40 a.m. to the scene and found the bodies of two men on the northbound shoulder and a woman in the southbound lane of travel.

“It looks like they were traveling in the same vehicle and were ejected from that vehicle,” Ríos said. “They may have lost control and flipped and ejected the people traveling inside.”

Ríos said the cause of the crash has not been determined, adding a secondary crash occurred when another vehicle collided with the vehicle that had overturned. That crash, he added, did not cause any injuries.

He said deputies cleared the scene around 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Ríos said the state Office of the Medical Investigator is working to notify next of kin.

More information about the incident will be released as it becomes available, he added.
