One man was killed and another injured Saturday, after the vehicle they were in rolled over on U.S. 285.

Ethan John Lilly, 23, of Hagerman was heading north on U.S. 285 at about 9:13 p.m. when he lost control of the 2006 Saturn he was driving. The vehicle rolled over near mile marker 98, west of Dexter, according to the New Mexico State Police.

Lilly was pronounced deceased by the Office of the Medical Investigator.

A 25-year-old male, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was transported to a hospital with serious injuries from the accident.

Alcohol does not appear to have been a contributing factor to the accident, though it appears seat belts were not properly utilized, according to State Police.
