REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have released the names of all five women killed when a limousine burst into flames on a San Francisco Bay bridge.

The San Mateo County Coroner's Office identified the victims on Tuesday as 35-year-old Michelle Estrera, of Fresno, 46-year-old Anna Alcantara and 43-year-old Felomina Geronga, both of Alameda, 31-year-old Neriza Fojas of Monterey and 39-year-old Jennifer Balon, also of Alameda.

The cause of deaths and toxicology reports are still pending. The Coroner's Office says a final report could take another three to four weeks to complete.

The victims were among nine women celebrating Fojas' recent wedding when the limo they were in caught fire on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge on Saturday night. Four of the women managed to escape.

Fojas and Balon had previously been identified by family. Estrera was identified by her employer.
