Police have identified the victims of two fatalities that occurred as a result of a Wednesday's night crash on the George Washington Bridge.

According to authorities, the driver of a GMC Acadia, later identified as 50-year-old Hector Pedercini, struck a box truck that was stopped on the bridge at approximately 9:30 p.m.

The GMC was occupied by Marianna (Pedercini's 5-year-old daughter), a 1-year-old girl (Pedercini's second daughter), Pedercini's 40-year-old wife, and a 64-year-old woman.

Pedercini and Mariana of Monmouth County NJ were transported to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

The driver of the 2008 International Truck was not unharmed, according to police.

Pedercini served as day to day manager for the Hagen Daz Ice Cream kiosk that's just outside the food court at the Jersey Gardens Mall.

The crash which remains under investigation, occurred on the eastbound side heading towards Manhattan.
