YUCAIPA, Calif. (AP) — Coroner's officials say the seven people killed when a tour bus crashed with two vehicles on a mountain highway in Southern California were five women, a man and a boy.

San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner's investigator Tony Campisi says the name of one woman is being withheld while relatives are notified and a man still hasn't been identified.

Three of the dead were San Diego residents and have been identified as 13-year-old Victor Cabrera-Garcia, 40-year-old Elvira Garcia Jimenez and 61-year-old Guadalupe Olivas.

Two victims were Tijuana, Mexico residents: 38-year-old Aleida (ahl-ay-EE'-duh) Adriana Arce (AHR'-say) Hernandez and 34-year-old Rubicelia Escobedo Flores.

All were on the bus that originated in Tijuana and crashed Sunday east of Los Angeles.
