DULUTH — The Minnesota State Patrol has released the names of two people killed when two trucks collided head-on west of Duluth.

The Patrol identified them as 29-year-old Lon-Lee C. Lindquist, of Cloquet, and 46-year-old Troy R. Berens, of Floodwood.

Investigators said the crash happened on Highway 194 Tuesday afternoon when a truck hauling well-drilling equipment experienced a tire malfunction that caused it to veer into the path of an oncoming pickup driven by Lindquist. The crash caused a fire.
