3 dead after colliding with security barrier at Robins Air Force Base

Three men were killed Friday evening when a vehicle drove through a gate at Robins Air Force Base and collided with a security barrier, authorities said.

The incident occurred about 9:30 p.m. after the vehicle approached the Russell Parkway gate and refused to stop, officials said in a news release.

The car then crashed through the gate, prompting guards to activate a security barrier to keep the vehicle from advancing, authorities said. The vehicle hit the barrier at a high rate of speed.

The driver and a passenger were pronounced dead at the scene. A third man was rushed to Houston Medical Center, where he died.

1. I just moved to help my son(air force) and dil. I am within 10

a 10 minutes drive from EglinAFB and Hurlburt Field AFB. The first day I was here, he took me on base and when we went to leave there was a lockdown. We were stuck for 40 minutes trying to get out. He said someone was shot the week before because they accidently accelerated instead of breaking at the checkpoint and this happens more often than you would think.

2. At the main gate at Vandenberg AFB the concrete

 

barriers before the gate are arranged so that you have to drive in a zig zag fashion preventing a high speed drive through the gate.

3. They should all do this. Many are terrified of making a mistake

at the gate, and rightly so.
