United States authorities have released the names of four Chinese nationals, apparently tourists, who died when their van collided with a staff bus belonging to the Dallas Cowboys NFL franchise along a northwestern Arizona state highway.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officials said on Wednesday that the four were from Guangdong province but couldn’t immediately provide the cities where they lived.

They say 52-year-old Li Guang Xiang was the male driver of the van, while the female passengers were 52-year-old Ou Suiqing, 52-year-old Bi Sangqin and 19-year-old Li Yuetong.

The DPS says they were related, but their relationships weren’t immediately clear.

Authorities say the van failed to yield the right of way at a stop sign on Sunday and the bus broadsided it.

Nobody was injured on the bus headed to a preseason promotional stop in Las Vegas. No players were aboard.
