Bail was set at $100,000 in Gloucester County yesterday for an unlicensed driver who police say caused a fatal two-vehicle collision in Clayton hours earlier.
Mary P. Rogers, 52, of Williamstown, died at the scene shortly before 7 a.m. after her car was hit by an SUV driven by Rubiel Sanchez-Ramirez, according to the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office. Rogers had been attempting to turn onto Fries Mill Road from Deschler Boulevard, official said.
Sanchez-Ramirez, 25, of Bridgeton, received minor injuries. He was charged with causing a death while driving without a license and cited for several lesser violations, authorities said.
He was detained in the Gloucester County Jail by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement because of his alleged status as an illegal immigrant from Mexico, according to the Prosecutor's Office. - Dwight Ott
