Police say 19-year-old Darren Snyder sped past one of their patrol cars back in April in Gallup. They said there was two other people in his vehicle.

The city said electrical problems are at the heart of the delay. KRQE asked the city for more details on what exactly broke on the tram, and they stated some of the fans used to cool down the mechanics on the tram need to be replaced; they don’t know how long the tram will take to repair.
