ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Authorities are now providing details about illegal drugs found at the scene of a collision between an Amtrak passenger train and a tractor-trailer rig carrying automobiles.
Sgt. Emmanuel Gutierrez of the New Mexico State Police said investigators discovered four pounds of meth near two vehicles thrown from the auto-carrier during the Aug. 14 accident at a crossing.
No one was seriously injured, and there's no word of any arrests at this point in the investigation.
KOB-TV reports that the owner of the auto-carrier said one of the cars belonged to a regular customer and that the other belonged to a man who paid for a one-time transport from Phoenix to Albuquerque.
