ISU Students Injured in New Mexico while on Spring Break

Several students on spring break in New Mexico. While driving the car in which they were all riding hit the median, rolled over, ejecting four of the six passengers. The young man who died was from Carlisle.

Stories reported at the Iowa State University news, the Record Herald and the Indianola Tribune and the Interceder. A check of the Department of New Mexico Transportation website did not reveal that state makes its crash reports public.

Parents may contact the NM-DOT in one of the following ways to obtain the actual State Troopers report of the crash.
