Second Person Dies in Eglin Base Collision

A man who was hit by a car while touring Eglin Air Force Base last week has died of his injuries.

Mark Birke was touring the base with a group of F-Four Phantom Two airplane enthusiasts. According to a spokesman for Baptist Healthcare, the hospital where he was treated, Birke died this weekend.

Airman Brett Jakubowski died Thursday when he lost control of his vehicle and swerved into the tour group of 90 people before colliding with a fuel truck.
