THREE people are dead and a woman is in a critical condition after the vehicle in which they were travelling crashed with a 4WD in Yanchep on Sunday.

The victims were in a Holden Astra, which was believed to have attempted a U-turn on Indian Ocean Drive, when a Volkswagen Amarok utility struck it about 7pm.

The 28-year-old male driver of the Astra and two female passengers, aged 20 and 31, were killed.

Another passenger, a 25-year-old woman, was yesterday in Royal Perth Hospital in a critical condition.

The victims were all residents of Swan View.

The occupants of the Volkswagen – two adults and three children – were treated for minor injuries.

The crash happened about 4km north of Old Yanchep Road.
