Bodies of 21 of the 23 Deadly Victims of Ecuador Bus Accident Identified

QUITO – Ecuadorian police identified on Thursday the bodies of 21 of the 23 people who perished in a highway accident earlier his week near Quito.

Authorities have confirmed the identities of 15 Colombians, four Venezuelans and two Ecuadorians.

The remaining two bodies are a man and a woman, apparently Venezuelan citizens, said the chief of forensic medicine of the province of Pichincha, Kleber Viteri.

“We have spoken with Eylin Bracho the Venezuelan consular representative here and we are looking for records to confirm the identity of the bodies,” he said. “It is very likely that they are Venezuelan nationals.”

Viteri also said that the bodies of the Ecuadorians were released on Wednesday.

The accident took place at around 3:00 am Tuesday on the road connecting Quito and Papallacta, which involved an SUV transporting nine Ecuadorian nationals and a bus with Colombian tags carrying mostly Colombian citizens, as well as eight Venezuelans.

In addition to the 23 deadly victims, the collision left 22 people injured.
