Two Dead After Crash on Route 230

Clarenville RCMP have confirmed that two people have been killed following a crash earlier this week.

Police responded to a two-vehicle head-on collision on Route 230, north of the George's Brook-Milton turn off.

A seventy-five-year old male and a seventy-two- year old female were pronounced dead at the scene and two others were injured and transported to GB Cross Memorial Hospital.

A child passenger was not injured but was transported to hospital for observation only.

Roads were wet at the time of the crash and hydroplaning is believed to be a major contributing factor. RCMP collision analysts attended the scene along with Fewer's Ambulance Service, Clarenville Fire Department and Lethbridge Fire Department.

The police investigation is continuing and names of the persons involved are not being released.
