A woman was found dead the morning of Sunday, Nov. 12, after a single-vehicle rollover on Rainbow Road near Pine Road.
The Rio Rancho Police Department responded to the accident around 6:15 a.m., where the woman was found and declared dead. Capt. Jacquelynn Reedy said the investigation found that the accident occurred at an unknown time earlier in the night, and after dawn a passerby discovered the scene and reported it. Speed was also found to be a determining factor.
The name of the deceased has not yet been revealed pending notification of the family.
