KENT JUNCTION, New Brunswick, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Three cars crashed on a snow-slickened highway in Canada's New Brunswick province Sunday afternoon, killing three people, police said.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the victims were a 57-year-old man, a 50-year-old woman and a 47-year-old woman, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported. They were all in the same vehicle.

The accident occurred on Highway 126 near Kent Junction, the CBC said.

"At this point, I can tell you the road conditions were very slippery and snow-packed," Sgt. Jeff Johnston told CBC News.

The lone occupants of the other two cars were hospitalized non-life-threatening injuries, he said.
