PHOENIX (AP) - The identities have been released of the seven people who were killed on Interstate 10 near Phoenix after a semitrailer truck crossed the highway's median and struck a van, according to Officer Carrick Cook with the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

Lanna Flood, 51, Tara Ferris, 32, Tylor Joe Harper, 16, Tori Sanchez, 13, Julian Flores, 12,
Damion Cuadras, 11 and Dominic Cuadras, 10, were all passengers in the van that was struck
head-on by the semi.

Flood, Ferris, Harper, Flores and both Damion and Dominic Cuadras were all members
of the Colorado River Indian Tribe.

Cook says the vehicles caught fire after the force of the crash pushed them into a culvert.
