Marbella Reyes-Braz and Juan Esquival have been identified by authorities as the deceased in a wrong-way chain-reaction multi-vehicle collision instigated by an apparent wrong-way driver that occurred on July 21 shortly before midnight in the Monterey County city of Greenfield. Ms. Reyes-Braz, a 38-year-old San Jose resident, was driving northward in a Nissan Rogue SUV when she encountered a southbound Honda Odyssey SUV driven by 71-year-old Salinas man Juan Esquival. The Nissan driven by Ms. Reyes-Braz was then hit by a Peterbilt big-rig driven a 24-year-old man from San Bernardino County and then a Ford Fusion driven by an 18-year-old male from Folsom. The woman and Mr. Esquival both perished from their injuries while two children riding in the Nissan Rogue were hospitalized with unspecified injuries. The tragic incident is being investigated by local authorities.
