SHREVEPORT, La. (KTBS) - Two people killed in an early morning crash in Shreveport have officially been identified by authorities.

Police said Megan Rogers, 19, and Blake Fritz, 20, both of Shreveport, were killed just after midnight Wednesday when the Chevy truck they were traveling in crashed into a tree in the 600 block of Robinson Place. That is near Creswell Avenue in Shreveport's Highland neighborhood.

When police arrived, the truck was fully engulfed in flames, and firefighters worked to put it out.

Both people inside were pronounced dead at the scene.

Based on information on Facebook, Rogers and Fritz were a couple. She attended LSU in Baton Rouge while he studied at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. The pairs' friends and family posted on their walls in remembrance of the victims all day Wednesday. 

The crash is still under investigation, however, police believe speed was a factor.
