A 25-year-old woman died Friday night in a head-on collision just outside of Woodstock.

RCMP said the crash occurred in Hay Settlement around 9:30 p.m.

The police said two vehicles hit head-on, then a third vehicle was involved in the crash when it struck one of the other cars.

Local fire departments rushed to the scene to help get the victims out of the vehicles, but it was too late to save the 25-year-old.

The woman, who was from the Woodstock First Nation, died at the scene. The 17-year-old driver of the vehicle was rushed to hospital in Fredericton in critical condition.

The two people in the other vehicle were sent to hospital with less serious injuries, while the occupants of the third vehicle were not injured.

The woman's name won't be released.
