MIAMI, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- A 75-year-old woman injured when a private bus crashed into an overpass at Miami International Airport died, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Gliceria Emerida Garcia of West Miami-Dade died from her injuries Monday at Jackson Memorial Hospital, making her the third person to die from the crash, Miami-Dade police said.

Police said Serafin Castillo, 86, was killed on impact, and Francisco Urena, 57, died a short time after paramedics rushed him to an area hospital.

Hospital spokeswoman Lidia Amoretti said two crash victims remain at the hospital in good condition.

Twenty-nine others were injured the morning of Dec. 1 when a bus driven by Ramon Ferrerio, 57, carrying a group of Jehovah's Witnesses to a prayer conference, took a wrong turn into Miami International Airport. Passengers noted several signs indicating tall vehicles shouldn't proceed on the road Ferrerio had taken and passengers seeing the approaching overpass asked him to stop, The Miami Herald reported.

No charges have been filed against the driver or the tour company operating the bus, the newspaper said.
