The accident occurred at about 10:23 a.m. on U.S. Highway 285 near mile post 152, between Roswell and Vaughn, according to a press release from the New Mexico State Police.

Early findings indicate that Laureano Gaspar, 22, of Escondido, California was traveling south on U.S. 285 when for unknown reasons the 2001 Toyota he was driving left the highway and rolled.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the accident. Seatbelts were properly used and the accident remains under investigation.
