CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) - Two Carlsbad residents were killed today when the semitrailer they were in rolled over, state police said.

State police say 25-year-old Scooter Carrico and 21-year-old Jeanette Miranda were pronounced dead at the scene early this morning.

Carrico was driving south on County Road 222 northeast of Carlsbad when the truck drifted off the road.

Police say he tried to steer back onto the road, but overcorrected, rolling the truck 1.5 times.
