Deming Police Chief Michael Carillo said 77-year-old Rodrigo Anaya was riding a bicycle on Pearl Street Friday afternoon at about 5:30 when he apparently failed to stop at the intersection of Pearl and Fourth Street.
Carillo said 23-year-old Paul Archibeque was driving a 2010 Chevrolet pickup west on Fourth when he struck the bicyclist. Archibeque told officers the setting sun was in his eyes and he never saw Anaya proceed into the intersection.
Anaya was transported to the hospital and later died as a result of his injuries.
Archibeque was cited for no insurance and unlawful use of a license.
