St. Paul, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Minnesota State Patrol is trying to identify and locate the driver of a semi-truck that might have played a role in a traffic crash in northwestern Minnesota Tuesday morning that claimed the lives of two teenage brothers from Moorhead.

The 18-year-old and 14-year-old siblings, along with two other classmates from Park Christian School in Moorhead, were traveling to a basketball tournament in Wisconsin when the deadly crash occurred on I-94 in the Fergus Falls area.

One of the surviving passengers told investigators that a semi truck was extremely close to their pickup truck at the time of the crash, and the crash reconstruction supports that statement. The truck was described as a white box-type trailer with a green or red tractor.
