Gabriela Sanchez, Arthur Medina Victims of Sutter County Multi-Car Accident

Sutter County, California – Authorities have released more details and the identities of two people who died in a multi-car accident on Highway 99 and Sankey Road in Sutter County.

Arthur Anacleto Medina, 43, of Sacramento and Gabriela Michelle Sanchez, 27, of Chico, died in the accident that happened just after 1 a.m. on Sunday, July 5.

Investigators said the collision was between a silver 2014 Toyota driven by Medina and a white 2007 BMW operated by Sanchez.

The BMW was traveling in the wrong direction when it collided head-on with the northbound Toyota.

Paramedics responded to the crash and confirmed that both drivers died at the scene.

The CHP is working to ascertain the cause of the crash, though alcohol is believed to have played a role.
