New photos show truck that may be tied to crash that killed MN brothers

The Minnesota State Patrol released photos of a semi-truck it believes is connected to the crash that killed two Moorhead brothers back in June.

Investigators are hoping the public can help identify the vehicle and the driver of the semi-truck – the State Patrol said over the summer a semi was traveling "extremely close" to the brothers' pickup truck just before the crash.

Zachary and Connor Kvalvog, who were on their way to basketball camp with two others, were killed when their vehicle hit the shoulder, overturned and crashed through the median on Interstate 94 east of Fergus Falls.

Investigators say the truck pictured above was in that area at the time of the crash. They used GPS data from other trucks, time-distance analysis and surveillance video to get a picture of the vehicle.

The truck is believed to be a late-1980s to mid-1990s Kenworth tractor, model T600 to T800 with an Aerodyne sleeper and dark blue cab. The trailer is white, with no visible markings. (See more images below.)

Bruce Gordon, a spokesperson for the Department of Public Safety, told BringMeTheNews the photos were released as soon as a specific vehicle could be identified.

"Investigations can be complex, requiring meticulous and extensive work to gather evidence and the facts in a case," he said.

The truck's license plate has a sequence of numbers, believed to be 024 or 025, however the state it's from is not known.

If anyone locates or knows of a vehicle matching this description, they are asked to call Sgt. Rod Eischens at 218-846-8244 or email him at
