New Mexico State Police: 2 Texas men killed in head-on crash

LOVING, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say two Texas men were killed when their vehicles collided head-on in southeastern New Mexico.

The New Mexico State Police says a vehicle driven by 19-year-old R.A. Steve Stephens of Trinity on Friday crossed the center line of State Road 128 near Loving and collided with a pickup driven by 47-year-old Anthony Robert Capetillo of McAllen.

According to the State Police, alcohol didn’t appear to be a contributing factor and the men apparently weren’t wearing seat belts.

No additional information was released.
