That is a man from the community of Jal, located in southern New Mexico. South of Hobbs and Eunice.

My condolences to the Duran family and friends. Rest in peace, Mr. Duran.

Why do you always have to be hating on Jal?!?!?!? I do not see how a traffic fatality has ANYTHING to do with a person's financial status or decisions........ Your comments lose relevance and meaning when you blindly through them out as everything being related to embezzlement!

Hey Jessie: My kid got into a wreck last month at that miserable 4-way Eunice intersection on hiway 18, heading to Hobbs to work. Totalled his car and tore up his back and hips, but he got out of it in one piece.(Not his fault--the other driver did not stop at the east/west stop sign.) There is now a 4 way stop sign there, put up several weeks ago, but people still blow through it.

Jess:
WAAAY too many people have been killed or maimed at that intersection. It was bad enough before LES entered the picture; now it's downright deadly day AND night. I worry every time my son has to drive to Hobbs, and I don't like going there myself due to that intersection.

i don't think a 4-way stop will deter people in the 'frame' of mind'. too bad for accident caused by idiot who was probably 'legal' to drive!!
