Accident: Snow-packed conditions lead to fatality

By The Staff

A Santa Fe teacher on her way back from delivering Christmas gifts to underprivileged children in Juaréz died Sunday in a two-vehicle crash on I-25 just north of the La Cienega exit.

State police officers arriving on the scene found a 2009 Chevy passenger vehicle had been struck by a 2003 Chevy truck.

Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the 2009 Chevy slid off the roadway due to snow packed and icy road conditions and struck the barrier wall. The vehicle was disabled and had come to rest in the middle of both northbound lanes of travel facing west.

The driver of the 2003 Chevy truck was also northbound and was not able to see the 2009 Chevy and struck it as it was disabled in the middle of the interstate.

The driver and sole occupant of the 2009 Chevy was identified as Dorothy Mullins, 54, of Santa Fe.

Mullins died as a result of injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Shelli Petty of Los Alamos said her sister was a teacher in Santa Fe Public Schools for 23 years.

“She was the youngest sister. Right now, it’s just hard to believe,” Petty told the Santa Fe New Mexican.

Petty is the owner of Children’s Montessori Preschool in Los Alamos.
