The three were members of Liberty in North Korea, an organization dedicated to bringing freedom to North Korean refugees. The Department of Public Safety said they were in a passenger van that pulled in front of a semi-truck that was carrying a highly flammable liquid. The driver of the semi suffered serious injuries but is recovering.
A memorial to the victims has been established and there is more information at the Facebook of LiNK (Liberty in North Korea).
