MOSS LANDING, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have identified women who died after their car careened into a river at Moss Landing in Monterey County over the weekend.
The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office on Monday identified them as 35-year-old Vanessa Carrango and 28-year-old Esther Monique Espinoza, both of Salinas. Carrango was driving at the time of the crash, authorities said.
The Monterey County Herald reports their bodies were recovered Saturday from a four-door 2010 Acura that was submerged upside down in the Moss Landing harbor.
The California Highway Patrol says is unknown if alcohol or drugs are a factor in the crash.
