Fourteen members of the same family were killed today in a car crash in central Vietnam on their way to a wedding party.

The groom was also in the vehicle that crashed and he died instantly when their van hit a container truck, police said.

The groom and his family members were heading to the bride’s family home in a neighbouring province when they were involved in an accident in Quang Nam. Their 16-seater van collided with a container truck at about 2.30am, killing 13 people instantly. Another died later in hospital.

Confirming the incident, a policeman said: “All victims’ bodies were brought back to their home for burial. We are treating some of the injured in a local hospital.”

Local authorities said Monday they were investigating the cause of the deadly crash.
