Fourteen members of the same family were killed in a car crash in central Vietnam Monday en route to a wedding party, including the groom who died instantly when their van hit a container truck, police said.

The victims of Monday’s car crash in Quang Nam were members of an extended family, including the groom, who were heading to the bride’s family home in a neighbouring province, a police officer told AFP.

Their 16-seater van collided with a container truck at around 2:30 am (1930 GMT Sunday), killing 13 people instantly. Another died later in hospital.

The policeman who pleaded anonymity as he wasn’t authorised to speak on the press, 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 they are investigating the cause of the deadly crash.
