New Mexico State Police on Monday identified six of the seven people who were killed in a chain-reaction crash during a dust storm in Hidalgo County more than a week ago.

Hyon Suk Head, 54, of Tucson was killed in a 2013 Mercedes.

In a Ford van, 43-year-old Larissa Wallace and 9-year-old Wyatt Wallace of Circle City, Arizona, died in the crash. The identity of the third victim in the van has not been confirmed at this time.

In a Honda Civic, three people from Tuscon--40-year-old Joseph Guttuso, 38-year-old Marnie Guttuso and 40-year-old Morgan Earle Cole--were killed in the crash.

On May 22, state police said a dust storm that limited visibility to almost nothing caused a chain reaction crash involving eight vehicles on I-10. The crash resulted in several vehicle fires.
