HANKINSON, N.D. (AP) - Law enforcement authorities have released the names of the two people who died last week after a two-vehicle crash in southeastern North Dakota, just north of the border with South Dakota.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol has identified the victims as 66-year-old Donna Henrikson and 68-year-old Clarence Hughes, both of St. Peters, Missouri.

Authorities say a pickup truck struck the driver’s door of a car around 12:40 p.m. Friday on Interstate 29 a mile north of the South Dakota border.

The Highway Patrol says Henrikson, who was driving the car, and Hughes, a passenger, were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup truck, 43-year-old Scott Thomasson, of Balaton, Minnesota, was transported to a hospital and released a short time later.

Authorities say the crash remains under investigation.
