The crash happened Saturday just after 2:40 p.m.

Two teenagers died and two others were injured in a crash on Highway 169 in Nashwauk on Saturday. 

The Minnesota State Patrol says a 1994 Chevy Cobra camper was traveling south on Hwy. 169 when it struck a 2005 Honda Accord that was attempting to cross the southbound lanes in a left-hand turn onto Hwy. 65.  

The Honda Accord was northbound on Hwy. 169 when the 17-year-old male driver attempted the turn in front of the camper. 

Two passengers in the car were transported to Fairview Range Medical Center but did not survive their injuries. 

They've been identified by the State Patrol as 13-year-old Trent Casey Salminen, of Hibbing, and 16-year-old Aiden Patrick Hall, whose home town is not listed in the report.
