Two people were killed in a head-on collision between a car and a truck on Wednesday morning in Maalahti, a coastal town in western Finland.

Pasi Sillanpaa, commissioner of the Ostrobothnia Police Department, told Finnish national broadcaster Yle that the car drove into the front of the truck for unknown reasons on a straight stretch of road.

The driver and a passenger in the car died immediately after the collision. Two persons in the truck were uninjured.

One lane at the scene was closed by police, and it was expected to reopen within a few hours, according to Sillanpaa.

Police are now investigating at the scene, and the country's safety investigation authority will also take part in the investigation, said Yle.
