Third Victim Dies After Miami International Airport Bus Crash: Officials

Gliceria Emerida Garcia, 75, died at Jackson Memorial Hospital, police said

Police on Monday released the name of the third victim who has died following the Dec. 1 bus crash at Miami International Airport.

Passenger Gliceria Emerida Garcia, 75, died at Jackson Memorial Hospital, Miami-Dade Police said in a statement.

She is the second patient to die at the hospital from injuries received in the crash, according to Jackson Health System spokeswoman Lidia Amoretti.

A chartered bus carrying 32 members of a Jehovah's Witness congregation slammed into an overpass at the airport on the day of the accident. Driver Ramon Ferriero was scheduled to take the group to a Jehovah’s Witnesses gathering in West Palm Beach but apparently got confused and drove to the airport before the 12-foot-high bus struck the 8-foot-6-inch concrete overpass entrance, police said.

Serafin Castillo, 86, was killed on impact, while Francisco Urana, 56, died after being taken to the hospital.

Two remain hospitalized at Jackson in good condition, Amoretti said.

No charges have been filed during the pending investigation, according to police.
