DEMING, N.M. (AP) -- Authorities have released the identities of six Arizonans killed last month in fiery multi-vehicle crash along Interstate 10 in southwestern New Mexico.

They say the name of the seventh person who died still hasn't been confirmed.

New Mexico State Police say the eight-vehicle crash on May 22 involved at least three tractor-trailers and three passenger cars in Hidalgo County, several miles from the Arizona border.

A sudden dust storm likely triggered the chain-reaction collisions.

Police say 54-year-old Hyon Suk Head of Tucson was killed in one of the cars while 43-year-old Larissa Wallace and 9-year-old Wyatt Wallace - both of Circle City - both died in a minivan.

Three Tucson residents in a car also were killed - 40-year-old Joseph Guttuso, 38-year-old Marnie Guttuso and 40-year-old Morgan Earle Cole.
