Two dead in E4 smash

Two men died on Saturday morning in a head-on collision between two cars on the E4 motorway outside of Örnsköldsvik. It is thought that they were both killed instantly.

There were two other men in the cars at the time of the crash. They have been taken to Örnsköldsvik hospital where they are being treated for serious injuries.

“But the doctors responsible for them say that their prognosis is good,” said the hospital’s information officer, Erika Jakobsson.

According to Västernorrland police spokesman Mak Henrei, the accident occurred just before 7am when one of the cars veered onto the wrong side of the road outside Husum, 18 kilometres north east of Örnsköldsvik.
