The occupants of a white Citroen C3, a man and a woman aged 19, were pronounced dead at the scene following the collision with a blue Ford Mondeo estate.
Launching an appeal for information, a Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: "We have traced the immediate family of the victims and broken this desperately sad news to them.
"Anyone who was on the bypass between the Carholme and Skellingthorpe roundabouts between about 12.30am and 12.50am and saw either the white Citroen C3 or the blue Mondeo estate before the collision, or saw the collision itself, is asked to contact police on 101."
The road has since reopened.
