SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities have identified an Espanola woman who was killed in a car crash in Santa Fe that also left her husband hospitalized with critical injuries.

Santa Fe County Sheriff’s officials say 71-year-old Lucy Fresques died in a hospital from injuries suffered in last Friday’s crash on U.S. 84/285 near the Buffalo Thunder Resort.

They say 74-year-old Robert Fresques remains at University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque.

Sheriff’s investigators say a car driven by an 18-year-old man reportedly was speeding and crossed the highway median before colliding head-on with the SUV that Lucy Fresques was driving.

The man and his juvenile passenger were ejected from their vehicle and remain hospitalized.

Sheriff’s officials say the crash remains under investigation.
