Santa Clara Pueblo man killed after being hit by several cars

A man from Santa Clara Pueblo in New Mexico was killed after he was struck by several vehicles, including one driven by Secretary of State Dianna Duran.

It's unknown why Broncho was walking on the highway. Toxicology tests will take a couple of weeks.
