NE Albuquerque - Early this morning just before 6am a crash happened involving a motorcycle and a semi truck. The crash was fatal for the motorcyclist. Albuquerque and New Mexico State Police could be seen investigating the scene at Louisiana and Copper NE across from the fairgrounds. Traffic was diverted away from Louisiana between Central and Copper while police investigated.

A witness on scene told us he was walking his dog and noticed the semi truck pull out from where it parks overnight and headed west on Copper towards Louisiana. As the truck entered Louisiana he noticed a motorcyclist going north bound on Louisiana and he apparently did not see the truck pulling into traffic and the bike slammed into the front bumper of the semi truck ejecting the motorcycle rider killing him instantly.

We will update this story if more information becomes available through official sources.
