Hit-and-Run Accident Claims Life of Motorcyclist in New Mexico

Over Memorial Day weekend, a motorcyclist from Albuquerque, New Mexico lost her life in a hit-and-run accident on State Road 68 in Ohkay Owingeh.
New Mexico State Police are conducting an investigation into the deadly motorcycle accident as they try to find a gray or silver GMC or Chevrolet truck with tinted windows.
The fatally injured motorcyclist, identified as 53-year-old Eloise Armijo, was riding in the southern direction on State Road 68 when a truck moved in front of her. Armijo’s motorcycle struck the passenger side of the truck, smashing the window of the truck.
After the motorcycle accident, the truck driver reportedly kept driving and left the scene. Meanwhile, Armijo was taken by ambulance to Española Hospital. While en route to the hospital, the medics performed CPR on her. Tragically, doctors were unable to save the victim; she was declared dead at the hospital.
According to the victim’s brother, Raymond Armijo, she was a compassionate person who worked as a police officer for the Albuquerque Police Department. She also worked for the Air National Guard for 20 years.
Armijo’s brother said that she enjoyed riding her motorcycle and volunteered for the Holy Family Church in Albuquerque. She was described by her friends as someone who was always willing to be helpful and a terrific mother to her only son.
The New Mexico State Police is requesting help from the public in finding the vehicle that allegedly fled the scene.
