  • 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.

  • North Mesa power out for five hours

    Power was interrupted to North Mesa beginning at 11:18 a.m. Tuesday when a contractor digging with a high pressure hose and vacuum exposed and breached one wire of three phase direct bury electric line on the east end of North Mesa, according to officials at the Department of Public Utilities (DPU).
    “About 250 customers were affected, initially,” DPU’s associate engineer for electric distribution Steve Marez said.
    To safely work on the damaged underground line, DPU’s electric linemen brought power down to all three phases of underground cable, while inspection and repair work occurred in the trenched area, which increased the number of North Mesa customers affected from 250 to approximately 750.
