Three airmen are believed to be involved in a multiple vehicle accident in Idaho over the weekend, but it might take days to identify the victims of the crash.

Four people were killed on Saturday on eastbound Interstate 84 in Boise, according to the Ada County Coroner’s Office.

Idaho State Police said the crash involved seven vehicles in a construction zone, according to KBOI-TV, the CBS-affiliated TV station in Boise.

Mountain Home Air Force Base told Air Force Times they won’t be able to confirm the airmen were among the four dead until their identities are verified.

“We believe some airmen stationed at Mountain Home Air Force Base were involved in the accident,” according to the 366th Fighter Wing public affairs.

The coronor’s office said the indentification process will occur over the next several days because of the condition of the bodies.

According to police, a semi-truck and SUV slowed down in a construction zone when a second commercial truck hit the two vehicles from behind. Four other vehicles were involved.

The incident is under investigation, and more information will be released when it’s available.
