BLUE EARTH, Minn. (AP) - Two people are dead after a one-vehicle crash on an icy Interstate 90 in southern Minnesota.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, 45-year-old Randy L. Fjeld and 44-year-old Sally D. Tadych, both of Circle Pines, died in the crash one mile west of the Bricelyn exit at about 2:15 p.m. Sunday.

Authorities say the pair were east in a truck when they went into the center median and rolled, landing in the westbound lane.

Fjeld was listed as the driver and Tadych was the passenger.

The Alberta Lea Tribune reports that neither appeared to be wearing seat belts.
