A day of drinking ended when a Rio Arriba County man ran over his girlfriend when she fell out of his truck.

New Mexico State Police said Lisa Espinoza, 28, was reported dead at an Espanola hospital on July 11.

She was reportedly drinking that day with her boyfriend Richard Trujillo, 42, at their cabin and later at the El Cuerno Bar.

Espinoza somehow fell out of the truck when the pair left the bar.

She was run over on Forest Road 131 and taken to the hospital by Trujillo.

He was later charged with homicide by vehicle and driving with a suspended or revoked license.

Trujillo is currently booked in the Rio Arriba County Detention Center.
