The crash happened in Minneapolis on Sunday night.

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.
