SALT LAKE CITY — Four people who died in a tour bus accident in the western U.S. state of Utah were identified on Saturday as Chinese nationals.

The Utah Highway Patrol tweeted that three women and one man from Shanghai were killed in the crash, which occurred on Friday near Bryce Canyon National Park, a popular tourist destination. All four of the victims were in their 60s.

Several others sustained injuries. Twelve patients remain in hospital, five of whom are in critical condition, the local Intermountain Healthcare provider said.

The cause of the crash is not yet clear. The National Transportation Safety Board is to give a press conference on Sunday regarding the ongoing investigation.
