A passenger in one of the vehicles was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

They are among the four traffic-related deaths reported in the northeast region in the last 24 hours.

A two-vehicle crash on Highway 144 overnight left one man dead.

In all cases, the highways are again open to drivers, and investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the crashes.
