    DINGWALL, Australia | Two Canadians lost their lives in a violent road accident in the night from Saturday to Sunday in Dingwall, in the State of Victoria, in the south-east of Australia.

    According to the local newspaper Herald Sun, the two young men were with three other people in a car that went off the road. The vehicle has done at least a barrel and ended his race against trees.

    The accident occurred at about 0: 30 a.m., local time.

    The driver, a German, 21 years of age, and the Canadians, both also aged 21 years, died on the spot. A British 19-year-old was in critical condition Sunday, while the fifth occupant of the vehicle, a German 29 years old, suffered injuries that are not life-threatening.

    The two injured were taken to the royal Hospital of Melbourne.

    The violence of the impact would not have left the slightest chance to the occupants of the vehicle. “In fact, it took some time for investigators to determine what type was the car,” said Tim Hansen, a representative of the traffic police, the Herald Sun.

    The five men had work visas and had been working in a vineyard area. The police believe that they could have spent the evening drinking in a local hotel.

    The exact cause of the accident was not yet determined Sunday, but the police have left the possibility that alcohol played a role, as well as the speed. The vehicle had to be inspected to determine if it was safe.

    According to the Herald Sun, the families of the victims have been informed of the situation and steps were underway to relatives travelling in Australia.
