The collision occurred shortly before 8:30 p.m. RCMP detachments from Stonewall and Lundar, along with emergency services personnel, arrived on scene to find a four-vehicle crash on Hwy 6 near Hwy 411 in the R.M. of Woodlands.
A 26-year-old man from The Pas and a 46-year-old man from the Woodlands area died in the collision. Their names will not be released.
