Harvieux, 21, of Stillwater and Michael Goodgame, 20, of Westport, Connecticut, were all killed when the SUV they were riding in skidded on an icy road and was struck by an oncoming semi truck.

Two other students in the vehicle were injured and are still hospitalized. Conor J. Eckert, 19, of Seattle, and the driver, 20-year-old William Sparks of Evanston, Ill., are both listed in satisfactory condition at Hennepin County Medical Center, the Star Tribune reports.
