DENVER — Four people were killed in a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 85 in Weld County early Saturday morning.

It happened around 2:30 a.m. about three miles south of the Wyoming border.

Trooper Josh Lewis, a spokesman for the Colorado State Patrol, said a 2015 Jeep Cherokee and a 2006 Honda sedan were involved in the crash.

Both drivers and one passenger in each vehicle were killed, Lewis said.

On Tuesday, the Weld County Coroner’s Office identified the four people who died. Yasmin Takiah Evans, 22, and her passenger, Taylor Alize Lipscomb Ashley, 24, were both senior airmen in the United States Air Force and were stationed at F.E. Warren Air Force Base near Cheyenne. According to reports, both women were restrained, according to the coroner's office.

The two people in the other car were identified as driver Jonathan William Upchurch, 30, of Rockford, Illinois, and passenger Zane Lee Schure, 30, of Fort Collins. They were also both restrained.

The CSP is still investigating the crash and have not released details as to what may have caused it at this time. More information is expected later Saturday.
