Police have revealed that two men and a woman were killed in the smash, which involved a Ford Focus and a white Citroen van travelling along the B1248 between Wetwang and Malton.
Officers say that the five people driving in the Ford were from the East Yorkshire area, and were travelling to start a dawn shift at the Malton bacon factory.
The two other men travelling in the Focus, both aged in their 30s, were taken to Hull Royal Infirmary with serious injuries.
The Citroen van was travelling in the opposite direction and the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, a 48-year-old man has been taken to York District Hospital with serious injuries.
