[ARCHIVED] Motorcyclist Injured in El Paseo Road Crash

Friday Crash on Rea Boulevard

Las Cruces police are continuing to investigate a two-vehicle crash that injured a motorcyclist Monday afternoon.

Shortly after 4 p.m. Monday, April 26, Las Cruces police and fire were dispatched to the crash that occurred at the intersection of El Paseo Road and Boutz Road. First responders arrived to find a 25-year-old motorcyclist on the roadway with multiple fractures. The motorcyclist was airlifted to University Medical Center of El Paso. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Traffic investigators learned the 2018 Honda motorcycle was heading east on Boutz Road and crossing El Paseo Road. At the same time, a 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe, driven by a 17-year-old girl, was traveling west on Boutz Road and turning left, or south, onto El Paseo Road.

Investigators determined the two vehicles collided when the Tahoe turned left onto El Paseo Road in front of the motorcycle. The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet but sustained multiple fractures to his arms and legs. The driver of the Tahoe was not injured.

Traffic citations are pending as police continue to investigate the crash.

Police temporarily closed a portion of the intersection of El Paseo Road and Boutz Road to obtain evidence and map the scene.
