Schriever Air Force Base officials identified two airmen who died in a head-on crash Wednesday as Airman 1st Class Edward Yu and Airman 1st Class Abtron O'Neal.

Both Yu and O'Neal were assigned to the 3rd Space Operations Squadron, according to a news release.

The airmen were driving east on U.S. Highway 94 at about 6 a.m. Wednesday and apparently swerved into the westbound lane to avoid a couch that was in the roadway, Colorado Springs police said. The vehicle they were in struck a GMC Sierra pickup truck.

Police said Yu and O'Neal were pronounced dead upon impact.

Schriever officials said there will be a memorial service for Yu and O'Neal but could not release any details.
