CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Police have identified two people who were killed early Saturday when their car slid across a freeway in Cedar Rapids and slammed into a patrol car.

Cedar Rapids police on Monday identified those killed as 21-year-old Martrell Demetrius Watson and 22-year-old Kaitlyn Marie Hall-Stougard. Both lived in Cedar Rapids.

Police say the crash happened at 2:48 a.m. Saturday when Watson lost control of a car he was driving on Interstate 380, causing it to cross three traffic lanes and strike a Cedar Rapids police sport utility vehicle on the far right shoulder. Two Cedar Rapids officers who were in the patrol car were taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The officers had been providing traffic control for an earlier crash.
