The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office identified the victims of a fiery crash in the Lowry Hill Tunnel in Minneapolis on Sunday.
Denver Smith Jr., 31, and Lucas Martell James Jr., 34, both of Minneapolis, died in the crash at 9:39 p.m. when the BMW they were in slammed into the freeway barrier wall, causing the fuel tank to rupture and explode.
The State Patrol identified a third person in the vehicle as a 24-year-old Minneapolis man, who sustained life-threatening injuries and was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center. An update on his condition has not been provided.
The State Patrol said the BMW went around the curve of westbound I-94 entering the tunnel at a high rate of speed.
It's unclear who was driving the car, according to the State Patrol.
