Two people were killed and a mother and her baby daughter were rushed to hospital after two collisions in Peel Region on Saturday night and Sunday morning, officials say.

In separate tweets, Peel Regional Police reported two fatal collisions overnight. One took place in Mississauga at around 10:38 p.m., while the second was reported in Brampton at 12:39 a.m.

In the first instance, police were called to the area of Derry Road and Ninth Line in Mississauga to respond to a crash that included two vehicles.

Police said the “injured parties” were taken to a local hospital where one later succumbed to their injuries.

A 20-year-old man — a passenger in one of the vehicles — was pronounced dead, according to police. They said the driver, a 20-year-old woman, was taken to hospital in life-threatening condition.
