Truck Accident at Deming Rest Stop Leaves One Dead

DEMING, NM — A multi-truck collision occurred at a rest stop west of Deming on Tuesday afternoon, resulting in the loss of one life.

The crash unfolded near mile marker 52 on Interstate 10 eastbound at a rest stop.

The collision began when a truck driver appeared to lose control of his vehicle following a blowout. Witnesses reported that the driver was traveling at a high speed before entering the rest stop area. The truck collided with the trailer of another truck, resulting in a fiery impact. Multiple trucks were ultimately involved in the incident, with several catching fire.

One fatality has been confirmed, and several individuals sustained injuries of varying degrees.

No further details were provided.

Thoughts on Truck Blowout at Rest Stop

This is a terrible crash that needs to be investigated. If reports are correct that the trucker lost control due to a tire failure, the tire manufacturer may be responsible for this crash.

We are seeing steer axle tires fail on semi-trucks nationwide at an alarming rate, leaving innocent truck drivers seriously injured and killed. While we do not know if that happened here, an investigation conducted by trained professionals will be able to determine the exact cause of the accident and who is ultimately responsible.

Those injured and killed in this crash deserve justice, and all wrongdoers must be held accountable.
