Two people were killed and three others were injured Saturday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 44 just east of Beausejour.

Lac du Bonnet RCMP responded at around 2:30 p.m. one kilometre east of Seddons Corner.

Police say a car with three occupants was travelling east when it crossed the centre line and collided with a pickup truck heading westbound.

The 24-year-old RM of St. Clements man driving the car was taken to hospital with serious injuries. His two passengers — a 24-year-old RM of St. Clements woman and 23-year-old Winnipeg man — were pronounced deceased at the scene.

The 55-year-old man driving the pickup, along with his 50-year-old female passenger, were treated for minor injuries at the scene.

RCMP continue to investigate.
