Schriever Air Force Base officials released the names of the two military members who died in a vehicle accident Wednesday on Highway 94.

Airman 1st Class Edward Yu and Airman 1st Class Abtron "Tron" O'Neal were active-duty Airmen assigned to the 3rd Space Operations Squadron. Yu and O'Neal were in a car that swerved to miss a couch that was in the middle of the highway, hitting a truck. Both Yu and O'Neal died on-scene

"We want to express our heartfelt condolences to Airman Yu and Airman O'Neal's families and friends, as well as the 3rd Space Operations Squadron family," said Col. William Liquori, 50th Space Wing commander. "This is a sad day for the Schriever family. The Air Force appreciates their service and commitment to our country. We will continue to provide assistance to their families. Edward and Tron will be missed."

Team Schriever is planning a memorial service to commemorate Airman Yu's and Airman O'Neal's lives.
