GALLUP, NM (KRQE) - An early morning crash on eastbound I-40 just west of Gallup, NM has left one man dead.

It began when Gallup Police were responding to a domestic violence call involving a man with a knife.

When they arrived at the residence a man took off in a white truck. Police chased the man to near by train tracks in what they say was a suicide attempt. When they caught up with the driver he took off heading to the highway.

The truck was traveling westbound on I-40 when it crossed the median into the eastbound lanes and collided head on with a semi killing the driver of the white truck.

The driver of the semi received minor injuries. The crash backed up traffic for miles.
