A mother and young son are dead following a two-vehicle crash near Homewood on Friday.
An RCMP investigation found that a Dodge pickup truck pulling a trailer crashed into a southbound 1999 Oldsmobile Alero around 5 p.m.
The driver of the Oldsmobile, a 27-year-old woman from Beausejour, and her seven-year-old son were both pronounced dead at the scene. Their names will not be released.
The driver of the Dodge pickup truck, a 32-year-old man from the RM of Dufferin, and his passenger, a male youth, were transported to hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
The crash took place at an intersection on Road 18 west, just north of Homewood in the RM of Dufferin.
