Three people, all believed to be young men, have been killed after a two-car crash in Denbighshire on Friday.
A Vauxhall Corsa and Vauxhall Antara collided near Denbigh at about 19:30 BST, killing three people and seriously injuring three others.
North Wales Police has said the three grieving families are “being supported by specially trained officers”.
Police shut the road between Denbigh and Trefnant for almost eight hours as they investigated the cause.
Three people remain in hospital with serious injuries while another person sustained minor injuries.
Denbigh mayor Catherine Jones said the community is “devastated and grieving” following Friday evening’s incident on a back road between the Colomendy Industrial Estate and the junction with the B5428.
“Everyone in Denbigh is totally shocked and devastated, there are no words,” said Ms Jones.
“The loss of three young men with their lives ahead of them is absolutely tragic, our thoughts are with their families who must be going through unimaginable grief.
“The whole community is grieving and we all pull together to everything we can to help and support the families.”
Police officers are appealing for witnesses or “anyone who believes they have any dashcam footage of the incident itself or footage of the vehicles in the moments leading up to the incident.”
Supt Jane Banham of North Wales Police added: “I would like to thank those members of the public who assisted at the scene, and equally I would like to thank all emergency services staff who were faced with a difficult scene.”
