ATV accident claims life of Silver City man
An all-terrain-vehicle crash south of Glenwood on Saturday claimed the life of a Silver City man.
Lloyd Montoya, 43, died at Gila Regional Medical Center after the accident on Forest Road 68, which leads from U.S. 180 to the San Francisco River (just north of the Aldo Leopold Vista rest stop).
According to state police, Montoya was northbound on the dirt road on Soldier Hill just before midnight, when he “drove into a large hole, which caused the vehicle to roll side to side, coming to rest on top of the driver.’
Family members took Montoya to the highway, where he was placed in an ambulance. Authorities said he was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, and that alcohol was not involved.
