A mother and daughter are dead after both were fatally struck while fighting on a New Mexico Highway. The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the incident took place around 7:30pm Wednesday on NM 599 near Airport Road. Santa Fe police spokeswoman Andrea Dobyns says both women and a female friend were traveling southbound when mother and daughter got into an altercation; a witness says both women had been drinking. Dobyns says the 37-year-old mother and her 20-year-old daughter rolled into the street, where they were hit by a car. The 53-year-old male driver immediately stopped. Mother and daughter were pronounced dead at the scene. Police have not released their identities but say they are from San Ildefonso Pueblo. Dobyns says no charges will be filed against the driver.
