Two women who died in a head-on crash on the Sea to Sky Highway last weekend have been identified as University of B.C. students by the provincial coroners’ office.

Olivia Sonja Robertson and Valentine Leborgne, both 19, died when their Jeep Cherokee collided with a pickup near Lions Bay Saturday morning.

Robertson, originally from Collingwood, Ont., and Leborgne, from Los Altos, Calif., had been staying in Vancouver while attending school.

Police said the Jeep crossed the centerline and hit the oncoming vehicle around 7:35 a.m. The truck’s driver escaped with minor injuries, while two other women in the Jeep survived with various injuries.
