A Friday morning accident in the far west city limits that claimed the life of a Hobbs, New Mexico man and injured another man was described as being a head-on collision, according to Andrews Police Chief Bud Jones.
The wreck occurred around 11 a.m. and involved a B-P Supply Inc. vehicle and a white pickup being driven by 39-year-old Ramon Granger of Hobbs, authorities said.
Granger, who was initially trapped in his vehicle and was extricated by members of the fire department, died from injuries sustained in the accident, according to authorities.
The driver of the B-P vehicle was transported to Permian Regional Medical Center by Andrews EMS for treatment of minor injuries, police said.
The accident occurred near the intersection of State Highway 176 and Cimarron—an area now included in the city limits since Andrews Loop 1910 first opened nearly a year ago, according to the police chief.
