Correction appended

A Santa Fe man died in a single-vehicle crash Saturday morning on Interstate 25 east of Santa Fe after his vehicle traveled off the roadway and hit a guardrail and concrete barrier.

Brentley Doyle Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene by the New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator, according to a New Mexico State Police news release. The accident occurred about two miles west of Glorieta.

Johnson, 49, is believed to have been wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident and alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash, the news release states. It is unknown why the vehicle left the roadway.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly reported the victim was a woman named Bentley Doyle Johnson. The crash victim was a man named Brentley Doyle Johnson. The error was from information in an initial news release issued by New Mexico State Police.

My husband is a volunteer Firefighter & EMT for Glorieta Pass and was on scene for that accident.

He had said that it was the strangest fatal crash he had seen in years and was completely puzzled as to what caused the vehicle to leave the roadway.
