Three young men were killed early Sunday in an accident between a car and a pickup truck in St-Edmond-de-Grantham, near Drummondville, Que.
The three were in a car parked on the side of the road along Route 122 when the truck, carrying two people, slammed into them around 4:30 a.m. The driver of the car is in hospital in critical condition, while an occupant of the truck is listed in serious condition.
The men in the car were between the ages of 21 and 26.
Quebec provincial police Sergeant Geneviève Bruneau said officers are investigating.
"We are trying to find out exactly what happened there," she said. "We have to meet people and after that we will be able to find out what happened."
It has been a deadly weekend on Quebec's roads. Nine people have been killed in collisions since Friday.
In the Laurentians, a man on a motorcycle was killed in a collision with a car Saturday night. Police say speed and alcohol may have played a role.
Two other motorcyclists were also killed over the weekend, including one woman who died in an accident on Highway 20, west of Montreal.
Two young people were killed in separate accidents in Trois-Rivières and Saint-Pamphile, northeast of Quebec City.
