FERGUS FALLS – Brothers and Park Christian students Zach and Connor Kvalvog died in a rollover crash this morning on Interstate 94 en route to a basketball camp in Wisconsin, according to Moorhead Park Christian boys high school basketball coach Josh Lee.

Park Christian student Mark Schwandt, 17,  and Jimmy Morton, 18, who is enrolled to be a student at Park Christian, were taken to the hospital.

"Zach and Connor both passed away at the scene," Lee said. "Mark Schwandt is in the hospital right now along with Jimmy Morton."

The Minnesota State Patrol said Morton had serious injuries, while Schwandt had non-life-threatening injuries.

The 18-year-old Zach Kvalvog was driving the 2010 Dodge Ram, said the patrol. Connor, 14, and the other two were passengers.

The State Patrol said four were in a 2010 Dodge Ram pickup that was heading east on I-94 near Dalton, which is about 13 miles southeast of Fergus Falls, when the patrol said the truck hit the shoulder on the north side of the interstate, over-corrected to the right, and then rolled into the median. The vehicle ended up in the westbound lanes of I-94.
