Three people from the Bathurst area have died after a head-on crash in Moncton.

Emergency crews were called to the traffic circle near CF Champlain at around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

“The collision is believed to have occurred when the car, travelling eastbound, entered the traffic circle travelling westbound and collided head-on with the SUV,” RCMP said in a news release.

The driver and two people in the car were pronounced dead at the scene. They included a 20-year-old woman, a 23-year-old man, and a 24-year-old man.

A fourth person was rushed to the hospital with what were believed to be life-threatening injuries.

“The four occupants of the car were not believed to be wearing seatbelts at the time of the collision,” said the release.

The driver and three passengers of the SUV were treated for minor injuries at the scene.

The eastbound lane of Wheeler Boulevard at the traffic circle was closed for several hours but has since reopened.
