Two people are deceased following a head-on collision that occurred yesterday evening on the Trans-Canada Highway east of the Goobies Weigh Scales.

Both drivers, a 46-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman, died as a result of the crash. The only other occupant, who was a passenger in the truck, was transported to the Dr. G.B. Cross Memorial Hospital in Clarenville for medical attention of non-life-threatening injuries.
A Collision Reconstructionist with RCMP Traffic Services attended the scene. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is engaged and the investigation is continuing.
