WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — Three men from Guatemala died Friday night after hitting a security barrier of a Robins Air Force Base gate.
A release from Robins AFB says the incident happened at the Russell Parkway gate around 9:30 p.m.
A driver and his two passengers drove through a gate trying to pass security when Security Forces activated a barrier.
The car then smashed into the barrier at a fast speed, and two of the men were pronounced dead at the scene. The third was taken to Houston Medical Center, where he later died.
Houston County Coroner Danny Galpin identified them as Yanny Perez-Perez, Adar Lopez-Morales, and Evelio Perez.
He says he knows Perez-Perez is 20, but he did not have the date of births for the others. He did say the trio were from Guatemala.
The news release from the base said the three men were not affiliated with Robins, and the investigation is ongoing.
