Two more Oregon bus-crash victims ID’d; may have Bothell connection

Two more victims of Sunday’s fatal bus plunge in Eastern Oregon were identified today by the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office – and they are believed to have ties to the Seattle area.

The names released Wednesday were Oun Hong Jung, 67, and his wife, Joong Wha Kim, 63. The couple are from Korea and were reportedly staying with relatives in Bothell, police said.

Nine people were killed and another 38 were injured in the crash.  Six of the passengers who died have yet to be officially identified.

There are other Seattle-area connections to the bus crash.

The only other victim officially identified is Dale William Osborn, 57, of Spanaway. Also killed was Yong Ho Lee, 75, of Lynnwood, according to her son. Friends and the college roommate of another bus passenger, Richard Sohn, 19, fear Sohn was among those killed.
