The groom’s family went to the bride’s residence in the morning when their minibus collided with a container truck in Vietnam’s Quang Nam province.
As a result of the collision, as many as 10 people including the groom was killed at the accident site while three others died at the hospital.
Meanwhile, four other passengers, including two children aged six years, are still hospitalized in critical condition. The ill-fated family drove from their residence as far as 450 kilometers to the town of Binh Dinh, where the wedding party will be held in the afternoon.
A number of horrific accident photographs appeared on the VNExpress news website showing the fronts of both vehicles were destroyed. The local police are investigating the cause of the fatal accident.
Traffic accidents are frequent in Vietnam. According to World Health Organization (WHO) data every year no less than 14,000 lives drifted due to traffic accidents in the country.
