GLYNDON, Minn. (AP) — Two North Dakota State University students were killed and a third was injured in a crash on a snowy and icy interstate in Minnesota, authorities said Sunday.
The Minnesota State Patrol said Danie Thomssen, 18, of Fargo, North Dakota, and Carson Roney, 19, of Oakes, North Dakota, were killed in the crash that happened about 10 p.m. Saturday on Interstate 94 near Glyndon, in Minnesota’s Clay County.READ MORE: Semi Driver Killed In I-94 Crash In St. Michael, State Patrol Says

The Star Tribune reported Sunday that all three were sophomores at NDSU in Fargo. Roney and Thomssen were listed as biology majors on the student directory, and Roney had plans to become a doctor.
A brief biography about Roney that was released in May by the provider of a college financial aid award says he intended to return to Oakes and practice medicine and take over the family farm. The newspaper reports that he played basketball, football and ran track at Oakes High School.MORE NEWS: Stray Bullets Hit Daycare, Multiple Homes In Brooklyn Park
