KEENE, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire police have identified the two people killed when their vehicle collided with a fuel tanker in Keene.

Keene police say 32-year-old Douglas Farr Jr. and 35-year-old Erin Breault - both of Hinsdale - died in the fiery crash on Route 12 near the Route 9 East ramp.

Police say the driver of the tanker - 54-year-old Jeffrey Cloran of Becket, Mass. - was treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital.

Police say the initial investigation shows the 2011 Hyundai, driven by Farr, crossed the center line and into the path of the tractor trailer.

Police say the tanker - owned by JP Noonan Transportation - was fully loaded with about 5,000 gallons of petroleum when the crash occurred.
