Three people on a quad bike were killed when it collided with a car near Wakefield.
The two women and a man, who have not been named, died at the scene on the A6021 between Upton and Hemsworth.
Police said the quad bike was in collision with a bronze-coloured Nissan sports car at around 00:30 BST.
Two men in the car, aged 21 and 22, were subsequently arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and remain in custody.
Det Ch Insp Richard Holmes said: “Clearly this has been a very serious and tragic incident with multiple casualties and enquiries are expected to be ongoing on that part of the A6201 for the majority of the day.
“We are appealing for witnesses and I would like to speak to anyone who saw either the collision or the driving of the quad bike or Nissan just prior to it taking place.”
