ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Albuquerque Police Department is investigating a fatal crash that involved a Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputy.

The sheriff’s department announced Monday that one of its deputies struck and killed a pedestrian while on patrol early Sunday.

Albuquerque police say the pedestrian who died has been positively identified as 28-year-old Brendan McClure.

They say at this point in the investigation, speed doesn’t appear to be a factor in the fatal crash.

Police say their investigation is ongoing.

Sheriff’s officials say the deputy involved in the crash has been placed on standard administrative leave while an internal investigation is conducted.

The deputy’s name hasn’t been released.
