Two people were killed and a third is in critical condition in Dunedin Hospital after a two-car crash near Outram late this afternoon.
The fatal collision was at the intersection of Huntly Rd and Church Rd, a rural intersection controlled by stop signs.
The impact of the crash saw both vehicles end up in nearby paddocks.
Police, ambulance and Fire and Emergency New Zealand staff were all at the crash scene, after being called out just after 5.30pm.
A St John spokesman said one person was being transferred to Dunedin Hospital.
No other people were believed to have been in the vehicles.
Motorists are advised to expect delays and avoid the area if possible.
Up until today, eight people had died on Otago roads so far this year: four drivers, two passengers, one motorcycle rider and one pedestrian.
