BREAKING: Bus accident victim identified

— Authorities have identified the deceased passenger in Wednesday's truck and passenger bus accident on Interstate 80 near Milton as Hoang Thi Thanh Son, 37, of Vietnam.

It took authorities three days to identify the lone fatality in the accident because officials said names were missing from the bus manifest. However state troopers found a passport when sorting through debris from the wreckage and matched that information and fingerprints to the victim.

The Vietnamese government has been contacted so that surviving family members can be notified.

Authorities promise more information as it becomes available.
