FARMINGTON — An Aztec woman was killed Sunday morning during a vehicle crash.

Lisa Moore, 49, succumbed to her injuries after being transported from the scene to San Juan Regional Medical Center, according to a Farmington Police Department press release and spokesperson Georgette Allen.

Moore was traveling westbound in a Buick passenger car on East Main Street when her vehicle collided with a Chevy Cobalt driving north through the intersection of Beckland Drive and East Main Street, according to the press release.

Police believe alcohol was not a factor and stated Moore was not wearing a seat belt when the crash occurred.

Officers were dispatched around 8:42 a.m. Sunday to the scene.

After the Buick struck the Cobalt, the Buick veered right and crashed into a traffic signal pole on the northwest corner of the intersection.

The driver of Cobalt, 73-year-old David Rose, received minor injuries to one of his arms and was not transported to the hospital, according to Allen.

Traffic was restricted at the scene until about 1:30 p.m. Sunday.

Investigators were reviewing video footage in the area to determine which driver ran the red light, Allen said.
