Modesto Man Killed in Motorcycle Accident
A Modesto man was killed in a recent motorcycle accident in Merced County. The incident occurred shortly after 2:00 in the afternoon along Turlock Road halfway between Ballico and Snelling. For unknown reasons, a 2012 Volvo tractor-trailer was involved in a head-on collision with a 2009 Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Sadly, the motorcycle rider was pronounced deceased at the scene. The Merced County Coroner’s Office has identified the biker as 42-year-old Luis Sanchez of Modesto. I would like to take this opportunity to send my thoughts and prayers to the friends and family of Mr. Sanchez in their time of loss.
