Newcastle man killed in rollover

SPRINGER, N.M. — Authorities say an Oklahoma man is dead after a rollover accident in northeastern New Mexico.

New Mexico State Police said officers responded to a single vehicle crash Monday on State Road 56 just east of Springer.

They said David Matthew Hamilton, 23, of Newcastle, died in the crash. Authorities said he wasn’t wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle.

Three other Oklahoma residents in the vehicle were hurt.

Police investigators said the driver apparently swerved to avoid hitting a dog, lost control and the vehicle rolled through a steel pipe and cable fence before coming to rest on its wheels.
