  • NM road crews mopping up after blizzard

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A day after blizzard conditions stranded motorists overnight and caused accidents that killed at least four people in New Mexico, highway crews Tuesday were mopping up and getting pre-holiday traffic back on the roads before another system moves into the state Thursday.

    Forecasters said the next storm isn't likely to be as severe as the system that caused rare blizzard-like conditions Monday. But they said it could bring enough snow to once again severely impact Christmas travelers on the Interstate 25 and Interstate 40 corridors Thursday and into Friday.

  • Four die in New Mexico crash as blizzard hits area

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A major winter storm wreaked havoc on holiday travel across New Mexico as rare blizzard conditions shut down virtually all major highways in the northeastern quarter of the state and contributed to a fatal accident near the Texas border.

    Four people were killed and two others seriously injured in a two-vehicle accident on U.S. 60/84 east of Melrose, the Curry County Sheriff's Office reported late Monday. And throughout the day motorists in the state were left stranded in whiteout conditions that were expected to rage through the night.
