The Newell Highway remains closed this morning following a fatal truck crash involving a sedan and a truck.

Five people were travelling in the 4WD with two boys, a 12-year-old and a 9-year-old, found dead at the scene.

The four-wheel drive, top left, and the B-Double, right, crashed about 3.30am.

An adult male and female from the vehicle were treated at the scene for minor injuries but not conveyed to hospital.

Officers from Orana Local Area Command attended the scene.

"The causes of the crash are under investigation".
