WELD COUNTY, Colo. — A crash between a semi and a car killed four people southeast of Greeley in Weld County Saturday.

Two adults and a male child from the car died at the scene. A second child from the car died later at Children’s Hospital in Aurora.

Weld County coroner Mark Ward released the names of the victims Sunday as 45-year-old Jamie Prado-Garcia and his wife, 63-year-old Linda Alvarez, both from Omaha, Neb. The two children killed in the crash were identified as 8-year-old Pedro Partida and 2-year-old Christian Partida, of Evans, Colo. The two boys were nephews of Prado-Garcia.

Paramedics took the driver of the semi to Northern Colorado Medical Center in Greeley. His condition has not been released.
