HOBBS, NEW MEXICO - New Mexico State Police think drunk driving may be to blame after a rollover in Hobbs that ejected two men.

Hobbs Police say the crash happened just after four on Friday afternoon on Alabama Road, just east of World Road.

They say 36 year-old Charles Lamons and 36-year-old William Holm were speeding east on Alabama, when the driver starting drifting, and then overcorrected.

Their Mitsubishi overturned several times and ejected both men.

Holm was airlifted to Lubbock, but Lamons was found dead on the scene.

Right now, Police are trying to figure out which man was the driver, but they say the men were going too fast, and did not have their seatbelts on.
Authorities say alcohol was a factor.
