Turgeon's daughter killed in auto accident

VAUGHN, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State Police say a Colorado woman has died in a crash that has left her passenger from Texas hospitalized in critical condition.

Police say 18-year-old Elizabeth Turgeon, of Cherry Hill Village, died in a two-vehicle accident near Vaughn early Thursday.

Investigators say Turgeon was driving a pickup truck that crashed into the trailer of a semi-truck at the intersection of U.S. 54 and U.S. 60 just after midnight.

Turgeon was pronounced dead at the scene while 18-year-old Brittany Kraemer of El Paso was transported to University of New Mexico Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police say dense fog is listed as a contributing factor in the crash as well as Turgeon's failure to stop at the intersection.
