MOORHEAD - A semi-truck was driving "extremely close" to a pickup before the Interstate 94 crash Tuesday morning that killed two Park Christian students, authorities said Wednesday afternoon.

The rollover Tuesday morning killed two brothers who were students at the Moorhead school: Zach Kvalvog, 18, and his brother, Connor, 14. Mark Schwandt, 17, and Jimmy Morton, 18, who were also in the car, are hospitalized. Morton reportedly remains in critical condition.

Troopers are looking to talk to the semi driver, Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Tiffani Nielson said in a news release Wednesday.

Funeral arrangements for the brothers were also announced Wednesday. Visitation is scheduled for 9 to 10 a.m., Monday, June 29, at Bethel Church in Fargo. The funeral service is set to follow at 10 a.m.

One of the survivors of the crash near Fergus Falls described the semi-truck as a white box-type trailer with a green or red tractor, which was eastbound on I-94 at about 9:08 a.m. Tuesday.

Authorities have said the pickup driven by Zach Kvalvog crashed at about 9:10 a.m., when the vehicle hit the shoulder on the north side of the road, overcorrected to the right and then rolled into the median.

Anyone with information about the semi or its driver is asked to call the Minnesota State Patrol at (218) 846-8244.

The four students were on their way to a basketball camp in Wisconsin.
