The Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office has positively identified the remaining four victims of Sunday morning's fatal bus crash that killed 9 people and injured 38 others along Interstate 84 east of Pendleton, Oregon. The following two names are released after confirmation that next of kin notifications were done:
