Police west of Toronto say a pair of overnight crashes killed two people and sent a mother and baby to hospital.

Peel Regional Police says officers responded to a two-vehicle crash around 12:40 a.m. Sunday in southwest Brampton, Ont.

They say a 20-year-old passenger was thrown from the car and pronounced dead at the scene, while the driver of that vehicle was arrested for impaired driving.

Police say a family was in the other vehicle and the mother was transported to hospital in critical condition, but is now stable.

Police say a baby girl was sent with her father to hospital, and they later issued a tweet saying both “are fine.”
