GEORGE, Wash. - A family of four from Stanwood died over the weekend in a car crash near George.
    
The Grant County Sheriff's Department says their car crashed into a flowing irrigation canal and submerged on Sunday morning near the Gorge Amphitheater.
    
Grant County Coroner Craig Morrison on Monday released the victims' names. They were 33-year-old Dioselina Buenrostro, 35-year-old Gabriel Ochoa, and two girls, 4-year-old Yesenia "Jessie" Ochoa, and 9-year-old Sandra Ochoa. The family was from Stanwood, Washington.
    
The Grant County Sheriff's Office says the family's SUV collided with a compact car at an intersection, then struck a guardrail and plunged into the canal. The SUV submerged and was pulled with the current about 100 yards downstream.
    
The adults died at the scene and the girls died at Quincy Valley Medical Center.
