ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Authorities are now providing details about illegal
drugs found at the scene of a collision between an Amtrak passenger train and a
tractor-trailer rig carrying automobiles.
Sgt. Emmanuel Gutierrez of the New Mexico State Police said investigators
discovered four pounds of meth near two vehicles thrown from the auto-carrier
during the Aug. 14 accident at a crossing.
No one was seriously injured, and there’s no word of any arrests at this point
in the investigation.
KOB-TV reports that the owner of the auto-carrier said
one of the cars belonged to a regular customer and that the other belonged to a
man who paid for a one-time transport from Phoenix to Albuquerque.
