GALLUP, New Mexico — Authorities say a Thoreau man is dead after a rollover crash near Gallup.
New Mexico State Police say 20-year-old Tyran Brown was ejected and died at the scene of the Tuesday morning crash on Interstate 40.
Police say it appears the vehicle was traveling eastbound on I-40 when it drove off the roadway and onto the center median. That caused the vehicle to go into a side skid, ultimately rolling over.
Police say alcohol doesn't appear to be a contributing factor in the crash but Brown was not using a seat belt.
They say an investigation into the crash continues.
