The Minnesota State Patrol has identified the victims in a fatal crash on an exit ramp from Interstate 94 in Minneapolis as two young adults from Anoka. 

Antwanika Quatanae Myles, 22, and Tyrone Derese Watkins, 20, both of Anoka, were killed in the single-vehicle crash on the 4th Street exit of eastbound I-94 just before 9:30 p.m. Sunday. 

The State Patrol says Myles was driving a 2000 Chevy Blazer that left the road and crashed into a bridge support. She and Watkins, who was not wearing a seat belt, according to the crash report, were pronounced dead at the scene. 

A 39-year-old woman from Minneapolis was also a passenger in the vehicle. She suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center for care.
