Three Guatemalans Killed After They Drive Through the Gate at Robins Air Force Base and Crash into Security Barrier
They’re not sending their best.
Three Guatemalan men were killed when they barreled through the gate at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia and rammed into a security barrier.
The story was mostly ignored by the national media.
None of the men had links to the base.
Houston County Coroner Danny Galpin has identified the three men killed in Friday’s wreck at a Robins Air Force Base gate.
Galpin says Yanny Perez-Perez, Adar Lopez-Morales, and Evelio Perez were the three men in the car that died as a result of the crash.
He says he knows Perez-Perez is 20-years-old, but does not have date of births for the others. He also says they’re from Guatemala.
Three men are dead after hitting a security barrier of a Robins Air Force Base gate Friday night.
A release from Robins says it happened at the Russell Parkway gate around 9:30 p.m.
A driver and his two passengers drove through the gate, trying to pass security. That’s when Security Forces activated a barrier.
The car then hit the barrier at a fast speed, the release says.
Two men were pronounced dead at the scene, and the other man was taken to Houston Medical Center where he later died.
Their names will not be released until their families are notified.
