OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Air Force officials have identified two airmen who were killed in an accident on a highway in north Oklahoma City.

A statement from Tinker Air Force Base released Tuesday says 20-year-old Ozzie Owens of South Carolina and 21-year-old Steven Spencer of Tennessee died in the single-vehicle crash about 3 a.m. Monday. Officials say both were Airmen 1st Class with the 552nd Air Control Wing, which is based at Tinker.

Oklahoma City police Capt. Dee Patty says the vehicle was traveling north on U.S. Highway 77 near Interstate 235 when it struck a bridge embankment.

Patty said a high rate of speed was a contributing factor in the accident.
