WELD COUNTY, Colo. — Two Air Force members are among four people who died a two crash early Saturday in northern Weld County, the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) said.

According to CSP, the crash happened around 2:30 a.m. on Highway 85 near Carr.

CSP said a Jeep Cherokee was heading south when for some unknown reason, it moved into the northbound lanes and crashed head-on into a Honda sedan.

There were two people in each vehicle, CSP, said: a 30-year-old and a 31-year-old in the Jeep and a 22-year-old and a 24-year-old in the Honda, and they all died at the scene.

Yasmin Takiah Evans, 22, and her only passenger, Taylor Alize Lipscomb Ashley, 24, were both Senior Airmen in the United States Air Force, stationed at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, near Cheyenne.

Jonathan William Upchurch, 30, of Rockford, Illinois was driving the Jeep, according to the Weld County coroner. His only passenger was Zane Lee Schure, 30, of Fort Collins.  

Everyone was wearing their seat belts, according to CSP. A spokesperson said they're investigating whether the driver of the Jeep was impaired.

A final manner and cause of death for each of the four decedents will await autopsy and laboratory reports, according to the coroner.
