Mountain Home Air Force Base has confirmed that three Airmen from the Base were killed in a weekend crash along Interstate-84.

The Base identified the deceased as Senior Airman Carlos V. Johnson, 366th Civil Engineer Squadron, Senior Airman Lawrence P. Manlapit III, 391st Fighter Squadron, and Senior Airman Karlie A. Westall, 366th Operations Support Squadron.

"I am devastated by the loss of our Airmen," said Col. Joe Kunkel, 366th Fighter Wing commander. "The upcoming weeks will be tough on all of us, but I know the Gunfighter family will pull together to support each other as well as the family and friends impacted by this tragic event."

Police have not identified the fourth victim.

According to ISP, a commercial vehicle and SUV were traveling eastbound when they slowed for construction traffic. A second commercial vehicle struck the SUV and the first commercial vehicle from behind, troopers say. Four other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The Cloverdale overpass is expected to be closed to traffic for months while crews make the emergency repairs.
