SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Investigators say a woman who caused a head-on wrong-way crash on Interstate 25 that killed two people had abandoned a sober driver before the crash.

Forty-four-year-old Clara Avina and 23-year-old Anton Gress, both from Santa Fe, died Sept. 24 after Avina was driving south in northbound lanes on I-25 near Santa Fe. The crash prompted an investigation into whether I-23 had a design flaw that was a factor in the crash.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (https://bit.ly/2gQELP2 ) that according to the report, 36-year-old Fidel Delgado had been driving Avina’s car to take her home after meeting her in a bar when the pair stopped at a nearby gas station to purchase beer. When Delgado exited the car, Avina got in the driver’s seat and took off.
