Debris litters the roadway after a crash causes the closure of Highway 26 between Deming and Hatch.

Highway 26 between Deming and Hatch is closed in both directions after a crash. The New Mexico Department of Transportation reported the crash shortly after 5 a.m. Thursday morning. No other details have yet been released. Difficult driving conditions are reported around southern New Mexico and far West Texas as a winter storm makes its way through the region. Traffic was diverted off I-40 in Arizona yesterday due to weather and that led to increased congestion along I-10 and Highway 26.

We will update this article when more information becomes available.
