ALBQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say the driver of a motorcycle involved in a fatal crash on Friday was likely impaired and had drunken-driving convictions.

Police say 26-year-old Marcus Gomez was driving under the influence when he crashed his motorcycle on Paseo del Norte near Coors Boulevard.

His passenger, Lizeth Gutierrez-Martinez, was killed in the crash.

An Albuquerque police officer who interviewed Gomez at the hospital said he showed signs of impairment. The officer noted that Gomez had a suspended license and two prior DWI convictions.

Gomez faces one count of vehicular homicide while driving under the influence. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.
