Three people have tragically lost their lives, and a fourth person is in a critical condition, after a head-on crash at Muswellbrook last night.
Emergency services were called to Bengalla Road just before 9:30pm, after a Kia Carnival and a utility collided.
The driver of the utility, a man in his 30s, died at the scene.
While the male driver of the other vehicle and a female passenger were also killed.
They’re yet to be formally identified.
Police say a male passenger in his 60s was also airlifted to the John Hunter Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
A crime scene has now been established and police are investigating.
