Two men were killed and two others are in critical condition after a head on collision on Sunday at Asaga, Savaii in Samoa.

Radio 2AP reports a taxi and a van collided head on and the two were killed instantly.

The victims who were critically injured were brought from Savaii to the Tupua Tamasese National Hospital in Apia this morning.

The young men who were killed had been attending a Sunday feast for untitled men at Sapapalii and decided to go for a ride afterwards.
