RENO, Nev. (AP) — The names of two more victims in the nation’s deadliest air-racing disaster were released Monday.

Washoe County medical officials said 53-year-old Regina Bynum of San Angelo, Texas, and 47-year-old Sharon Stewart of Reno were among the 10 people who died as a result of Friday’s air show crash.

Officials have yet to identify three of the dead. Pilot Jimmy Leeward was among those killed.

Authorities said 70 people were treated at area hospitals.

Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center said one patient remained in critical condition and five were in serious condition at the hospital in Reno.

Renown Regional Medical Center said it still has 11 patients, three of them in critical condition.

The P-51 Mustang crashed Friday afternoon at the National Championship Air Races at the Reno Stead Airport.
