2 killed in collision between truck, pickup

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

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

Investigators say 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.

The Duluth News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/12rIAdk ) the driver of the larger truck was taken to a hospital in Duluth, where he was listed in good condition Wednesday.
