Police are appealing for witnesses after two women died in a crash on the A149 at King's Lynn on Wednesday night.
It happened shortly after 5pm near to the junction with Castle Rising Road when two cars, a blue Peugeot 107 and a blue Vauxhall Astra.
Emergency services, including fire, ambulance and the air ambulance attended, but the driver of the Peugeot, a woman in her mid-70s, died at the scene.
The passenger of the Peugeot, a woman in her late 80s, was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH), in King's Lynn, via land ambulance, but later died.
The driver of the Vauxhall, a man in his late 40s, suffered serious injuries and was taken to the QEH where he remains in a stable condition.
The A149 was closed while emergency services dealt with the incident and re-opened at 10.45pm.
Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the crash or has information concerning the driving manner of either vehicle prior to the incident.
