Two men have died while a woman and an 18-month old boy remain in a “critical” condition following a horror crash in Northamptonshire last night.

Police have confirmed the fatal road traffic collision occurred last night at approximately 8.20pm.

A silver Mazda 5, travelling along the A43 from Duddington towards Corby, collided with a white DAF truck.

Two men, both passengers in the Mazda, aged 21 and 28, were pronounced dead at the scene.

A woman and 18-month-old boy, who were also passengers, sustained critical injuries.

The driver sustained non life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the truck was not injured.
