A Bay Area woman was medi-flighted to Modesto Memorial Hospital Monday afternoon after a solo motorcycle crash on Highway 4, west of Pool Station Road.

Alekxandra Nurnberg, 44, of Campbell, Calif., was riding a 2005 Harley-Davidson Sportster eastbound through a curve when her motorcycle left the roadway for unknown reasons and crashed through a barbwire fence, coming to rest at the bottom of a small embankment, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
