Three international students from the University of Manitoba have died following a two-vehicle crash on Highway 7 Thursday morning.

Manitoba RCMP from Arborg and Gimli responded to the head-on crash at around 6:20 a.m., approximately seven kilometres south of Arborg.

Police say a southbound car, carrying three occupants, collided head-on with a northbound car, being driven by a 53-year-old woman from the RM of Armstrong.

The woman in the northbound car was taken to hospital in Winnipeg with non-life-threatening injuries.

All three people in the southbound car were pronounced deceased on scene. They have been identified as Winnipeg-based students from Bangladesh — Aranoor Azad Chowdhury, Numan Aditta and Risul Badhon.

Alcohol isn’t considered a factor in the collision.

RCMP continue to investigate.
