Two more victims have been identified in the bus crash on Interstate 84 in eastern Oregon that killed nine people and injured more than three dozen others.

Chun Ho Bahn, 63, of Bothell, Wash., and Ae Ja Kim, 61, of Gangwon Province, Korea, were identified Thursday morning as having died in the Sunday crash near Pendleton, according to an Oregon State Police news release.

The crash, which occurred on an icy stretch of the highway, injured 38 people in addition to the nine fatalities. The charter bus was bound for Vancouver, B.C., from Las Vegas when it lost control and careened through a guardrail and fell several hundred feet down an embankment.

Also identified earlier were victims 11-year-old Youmin Kim of South Korea, Oun Hong Jung, 67, and his wife, Joong Wha Kim, 63, who were also killed in the crash.

The other identified victims are 75-year-old Yongho Lee of Lynnwood Wash. and 57-year-old Dale William Osborn of Spanaway, Wash.

The Oregon Department of Transportation said Sunday’s crash is the deadliest traffic crash in Oregon since 1971 and ties the second deadliest since 1946.

The deadliest crash in Oregon history happened in 1965 when a Greyhound bus lost control on ice and rolled, killing 14 people and injuring 30 others.
