A family of four died over the weekend in a traffic crash in Washington state.

The Spokesman-Review reports their SUV crashed into a flowing irrigation canal and submerged Sunday morning near George, Wash.

Grant County Coroner Craig Morrison on Monday released the victims' names. They were 33-year-old Dioselina Buenrostro, 35-year-old Gabriel Ochoa, and two girls, 4-year-old Yesenia "Jessie" Ochoa, and 9-year-old Sandra Ochoa. The family was from Stanwood, Wash.

The Grant County Sheriff's Office says their SUV collided with a compact car at an intersection near the Gorge Amphitheater, then struck a guardrail and plunged into the canal. The SUV submerged and was pulled with the current about 100 yards downstream.

The adults died at the scene, and the girls died at Quincy Valley Medical Center.
