A Ford Explorer was travelling northbound on Gateway Road around 9:30 pm and crossed over the centre line into the southbound lanes, crashing into a Pontiac Grand Am. 

The 23-year-old and 42-year-old women in the Grand Am were rushed to hospital in critical condition, but died from their injuries. 

The 28-year-old woman and 31-year-old man in the SUV were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Some neighbours in East Kildonan saw the aftermath of the crash. 

Rick Ginter had just arrived home when he saw paramedics working at the chaotic scene. 

"They worked very hard to cut open a car and get the person out, and (they started) heart compressions instantly, so we thought it was probably fairly serious," Ginter said. 

Traffic Unit investigators are still working on determining the details around the crash. They're asking anyone with information to contact them at (204) 986-6271, or to contact Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-8477.
