SPUR, Texas — Kelley Gene Williamson, 57, and Randall Delane Yarnall, 55, both of Cassville, Missouri, and Corbin Lee Jaeger, 25, of Peoria, Arizona have been identified as the three storm chasers who died in an accident yesterday.

Two of the storm chasers, Williamson and Yarnall, were contractors for the U.S. based weather channel.

They were killed in a collision near Spur, about 90 kilometers southeast of Lubbock.

Sgt. John Gonzalez from the Department of Public Safety says a Chevrolet Suburban driven by Williamson ran a stop sign and hit a Jeep that was driven by Jaeger.

All three were killed instantly.
