As many were celebrating America’s independence, New Mexico State Police were responding to a rollover crash in rural San Miguel County.

Around 9:30 p.m. on July 4, officers were called to a single-vehicle crash on a remote stretch of State Road 283, south of Las Vegas. Officers found a silver SUV flipped on its side near milepost 6. Police say the driver, 29-year-old Alexander C. Crowell of Las Vegas, admitted to drinking two beers earlier in the evening, and to smoking marijuana.
