NM police: Ex-NHL player’s daughter dies in crash
VAUGHN, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State Police say the 18-year-old daughter of former NHL center Pierre Turgeon was killed when the pickup truck she was driving crashed into the trailer of a semi-truck at an intersection.
Police say Elizabeth Turgeon of Cherry Hill Village, Colo., died at the scene about 100 miles east of Albuquerque early Thursday. Lt. Eric Garcia confirmed Sunday that the teen was the former NHL player’s daughter.
A passenger in the pickup was transported to University of New Mexico Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Turgeon’s father played 19 seasons with Buffalo, the New York Islanders, Montreal, St. Louis, Dallas and Colorado, scoring 515 goals with 812 assists in 1,294 games.
Police say dense fog was a contributing factor in the crash, as well as Turgeon’s failure to stop at the intersection.
