Traffic was halted in all directions on Highway 70 Friday after a vehicle overturned about 8:45 a.m. north of Portales and another vehicle, whose driver attempted to pass it, drove off the side of the road and flipped, a spokesman for the Portales Fire Department said.
Both occupants were transported to Roosevelt General Hospital in Portales and treated for minor injuries.
The Portales Fire Department, which was called to the scene, did not have the names of the drivers, and the Mexico State Police did respond to requests for more information.
