ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Catholic Church officials say an employee of a diocese outside Washington, D.C., was among the 80 people who died in the Spain trash crash this week.
The Diocese of Arlington says on its Facebook page that Ana Maria Cordoba, an administrative employee from northern Virginia, died in the wreck.
Catholic News Service, a division of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, reports that Cordoba, a benefits specialist, was traveling with her husband, Philippe, and her daughter, Christina, a rising high school senior in Arlington.
CNS reports that Philippe and Christina Cordoba were in stable condition at a hospital.
Family members were on their way to see the Cordobas' son, who had completed a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.
Messages left for the diocese late Thursday were not immediately returned.
