Monterey County, CA (August 8, 2018) – A local news source reported that a fatal traffic accident involving a motorcycle took place along Molera Road. The incident occurred at 1:30 PM in the afternoon on Sunday, August 5, 2018. Recently, authorities have identified the driver involved in the crash as 27-year old Salinas resident Noemi Sanchez. At this time, no detailed information concerning the identities of the deceased motorcyclist or the adult passenger and four juvenile passengers riding in Sanchez’s vehicle has been revealed.
