Authorities have released the identities of four people killed when their ATV plunged off a northern Arizona cliff.

The Coconino County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday identified victims in the weekend crash near Blue Ridge as 37-year-old Reymond Martinez, 38-year-old Enrique Lopez, 36-year-old Manuel Ladislao Bracamonte and 17-year-old Abraham Javier Rodriquez Delgado.
All four were from metropolitan Phoenix.
Sheriff's officials say the crash is still under investigation.
The four were part of a larger group on a camping trip in the Payson area. They were reported missing Saturday when they did not return from ATV riding.
Deputies determined their ATV somehow went off a forest road and fell 400 feet (122 meters).
A small fire sparked by the crash initially made it difficult for rescuers to reach the scene.
