ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An 11-year-old New Mexico girl injured in a suspected drunken driven motorcycle crash that killed her father is getting a special visit from firefighters.

The Albuquerque Fire Department planned a visit Wednesday to bring Magen Sanchez gifts while she recovers from injuries at the University of New Mexico Hospital.

Authorities say a truck driven by Jacob Williams veered over a center line last month near Belen, killing 51-year-old Daniel Sanchez and seriously injuring his daughter.

According to the criminal complaint, breath tests found Williams‘ blood-alcohol level at 0.16 percent, or twice the legal limit.

Sanchez’s brother, state District Court Judge William Sanchez, of Los Lunas, presided over an earlier fatal DWI case in which Williams pleaded guilty.

Official say Magen Sanchez is expected to be released Friday.
