LEA COUNTY, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State Police say an Arizona man is dead after a crash in Lea County.           

They say 37-year-old Jorge Luis Romo was pronounced dead at the scene of Tuesday's accident on U.S. 62/180.           

Police say a commercial motor vehicle driven by a Hobbs man allegedly failed to yield to Romo's car as it was making a turn onto an access road.           

The other driver wasn't injured and police say the fatal crash remains under investigation.
