Bernalillo County deputies say woman, 1-year-old boy dead after single-rollover crash


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — Authorities in Bernalillo County say a young boy and a woman are dead after the vehicle they were in crashed.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department says the crash occurred Saturday night on Coors Boulevard just south of Rio Bravo.

Sgt. Aaron Williamson says 41-year-old Carlos Rosales-Polanco was heading north on Coors Boulevard when he struck the median, crossing the southbound lanes and hitting a utility pole.

The car then rolled into a field.

Williamson says 30-year-old Adriana Chavez-Miranda, a front seat passenger, died at the scene.

Two children, ages 10 and 1 ½, were transported to a hospital. The 1-1/2-year-old boy succumbed to his injuries. The 10-year-old is in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.

Rosales-Polanco has been booked for vehicular homicide.

Authorities say alcohol and speed appear to be factors.
