A 42-year-old Santa Teresa man was killed in an ATV crash Sunday evening, according to the Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Department.

The crash happened just before 8 p.m. in the desert area near Airport Road and Pete V. Domenici Highway.

Deputies say Ivan Kihara was riding a 2008 Honda ATV along a trail in the desert when the ATV left the roadway, rolled over and flipped several times.

Kihara was pronounced dead at the scene, said deputies.

Alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in the crash.
