FARMINGTON, N.M. - Police in New Mexico say a woman was intoxicated when she fell while car surfing and died.

Detective Lt. Kyle Lincoln with the San Juan County Sheriff's Office tells The Daily Times of Farmington (http://bit.ly/2dNakcx ) that Wilberta Becenti was standing on top of the car Sunday morning while a driver rode on rough dirt roads.

Lincoln says Becenti was intoxicated at the time. Investigators haven't determined whether the driver was also intoxicated. No charges have been filed.
