Northbound I-25 was still closed around lunchtime Tuesday as police sifted through “several hundred feet” of crash-scene debris according to Santa Fe Police Chief Aric Wheeler.

A woman driving a late-model Nissan Altima was reportedly reaching speeds around 100 mph while traveling south in the northbound lanes of I-25 when she collided head-on with a medical transport truck around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The woman died and the female passenger in her car was taken to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center. the female driver of the medical transport truck was airlifted to University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque.
