Trucks collide on N.M. 4; Main Hill open

A small cargo truck and an auto transport truck heading in opposite directions on Main Hill Road side swiped each other just after Anderson Lookout Point.

A call to dispatch was received at approximately 2:40 p.m., Los Alamos Police Lt. Jeff Regenold said. There was just a slight delay for traffic heading eastbound as the transport truck attempted to pull over on the side of the road.

And while the all-steel transport truck received only minor scrapes, the cargo truck garnered crushed corners, piercing scrapes and a flat tire.

Both drivers are stating it was the other's fault for the accident, but Regenold said he's working to determine who actually caused the accident.

No injuries were reported.

Investigation: Police are working with OMI

LAPD launches probe into local woman's death

By John Severance

Los Alamos Police investigators want to know more about circumstances surrounding the recent death of a Los Alamos woman.

For the past three weeks, the department has been investigating the death of 28-year-old Los Alamos resident Jamie Lee Ireland, who died May 31.

On May 20, the Consolidated Dispatch Center received a call that Ireland had sustained injuries after a fall down a flight of stairs at 802 9th Street Apartment #22 – though a review of dispatch logs from that day did not include any account of the initial incident.

But police are looking into whether foul play was involved in the incident or not which is what’s being investigated, Captain Randy Foster said.

Radiation monitoring flyovers set for this week--updated with more info

 The National Nuclear Security Administration plans this week to complete a high-fidelity aerial survey of Los Alamos town site, a dual-step project initiated last fall.
The survey began Monday and will through Wednesday night. The county release indicated that the NNSA is conducting flights to do aerial radiation surveys over LANL property and the townsite. Residents may notice the silver and blue Bell 412 helicopter flying overhead.
NNSA arranged for the Remote Sensing Laboratory/National Aerial Measuring System (RSL) of Las Vegas, Nev., to conduct this second flyover following a similar survey of lab property in August 2011, after the Las Conchas fire.

The latest update says the size of the fire is 245 acres. The size of the fire was downgraded because of better mapping, the Forest Service announced.

Incident Commander Chris Stevens told the Los Alamos Monitor Thursday afternoon that the fire is 80 percent contained. 

Stevens said that crews worked Wednesday night putting in a hand line around the perimeter of the fire.

"It's called a shaky containment," Stevens said.

May remained somewhat dry

The first half of May showed the promise of a somewhat wetter weather pattern for northern New Mexico.  Two storms (May 8 and May 11–13) netted Los Alamos the total rainfall for the month, 0.93 inches.  White Rock received 0.78 inches of rainfall during the month, also resulting from these two storms.  These two storms were “back-door” cold fronts, bringing moisture and cooler temperatures from the northeast and spreading across New Mexico from east to west.

Bomb threat snarls evening commute -- More updates

By John Severance

The Truck Route was closed for about 45 minutes Wednesday afternoon because of a bomb threat at the SOC shooting range at TA-72 on Los Alamos National Laboratory property.

“Someone called about 3:45 p.m. and said there was a bomb on the shooting range,” LANL spokesperson Kevin Roark said. “The Truck Route was closed. Emergency management responded and the area was checked out by a bomb-sniffing dog. The road reopened at 4:22 p.m.”

As a result, that caused a massive backup on the Truck Route and N.M. 502 heading east. Traffic was back to normal about 5:30 p.m

Roark said, “These things are extremely rare and I can not remember the last time there was a bomb threat. We have a protocol and we followed it.”
