Authorities identified the woman killed in a three-vehicle accident near Patterson Wednesday as a 44-year-old from Merced. According to the Stanislaus County Coroner’s office, Anna Manzo de Perez died in the accident.

Manzo de Perez was a passenger in a 2000 Nissan Frontier pickup driven by Gabino Solorro, 25, of Merced. The Frontier, carrying five people to a nearby field for agricultural work, was headed north on Highway 33 when Solorro turned left, directly into the path of a van.

The van, driven by Gabino Cisneros, 31, of Modesto, hit the truck, sending it backward into a big rig behind it. The other occupants of the truck suffered injuries ranging from moderate to major. The driver of the big rig wasn’t hurt.
