New Mexico man dies after Jeep goes off cliff
New Mexico State Police say a man died Sunday morning when the 1998 Jeep he was driving went over a cliff and dropped into a “deep canyon,” near High Rolls, New Mexico. Police said they believe the men were not wearing seat belts and alcohol may have been a factor, but the crash remains under investigation. Baca was transported to Gerald Champion Hospital in Alamogordo, but had to be transferred to University Medical Center in El Paso, police said. Edward Pitkus III, 25, of Tularosa, New Mexico was pronounced dead at the scene after police say, he and his passenger “failed to navigate a bend in the road” and dropped into a canyon on Westside Road. Both Pitkus and his passenger, Charles Baca, 23, also of Tularosa, were ejected from the Jeep, but Baca was able to exit the canyon by foot where he found a random campsite and was able to contact emergency services, police said.
A 25-year-old Worcester man will be brought to court after authorities say he choked another man earlier this month, then stole the victim’s Jeep and set it on fire. “The suspect then took the keys to the victim’s vehicle and drove it behind the auto body. The owner of the vehicle, a 29-year-old man, told police he got into argument with Alers. “The victim was punched in the face and placed in a choke hold by the suspect,” police said. When the victim checked the area, he saw his Jeep in flames.
