Second Release: Lakenheath Airman dies in vehicle accident


Following next-of-kin notifications, the Airman involved in the fatal single-car crash between Elveden and Brandon, Nov. 24, has been identified as Airman First Class Hayley Reynolds.


“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Airman Reynolds, and send our sincerest condolences to her family and friends at this difficult time,” said Col. Evan Pettus, 48th Fighter Wing commander. 


Reynolds, aged 21 from New Haven, Indiana, came to the 48th Medical Group, In-patient Operations Squadron, in April 2016.


No other passengers were in the car.


“The Liberty Wing would like to thank emergency responders from Suffolk Police and Norfolk Fire and Rescue for their efforts in responding to the accident,” said Pettus. “As the days get shorter and colder, we continue to stress driving safety measures to our Airmen and families.”


Questions regarding the collision investigation should be directed to Suffolk Police.
