Ever Menchaca, 40 of Hobbs, NM, was killed Sunday when a semi-truck driving in the opposite direction came into his lane. The other semi-truck was driven by 62-year-old David Elvis Holt of Bastrop, Texas. He was also killed in the collision. Authorities say that Holt was driving eastbound on State Road 128 in Lea County when he entered the westbound lanes to pass a slow-moving semi-truck that was turning right from the eastbound lane. They believe speed was a factor in the crash.
