ALAMOGORDO, N.M. — Alamogordo police say a car was traveling at high speed when it failed to negotiate a curve and rolled over, killing three airmen from Holloman Air Force Base.
The Alamogordo Daily News reports that identities of those killed in the Tuesday morning accident were withheld pending notification of relatives.
A city worker spotted the wreck in the desert after dawn, but it apparently happened hours earlier.
A Holloman spokesman says the victims were assigned to the 49th Wing. They included one instructor and two students with the wing’s remotely piloted aircraft squadron.
