HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — A van carrying a wedding party has crashed in central Vietnam, killing 13 people, including the groom.
The van, carrying 17 people, collided head-on into an incoming container truck at 2:30 a.m. in Quang Nam province, according to provincial Mayor Dinh Van Thu.
Thu said 10 people died at the scene and three others when they were rushed to a hospital.

The entourage, from the groom’s family, was on a 450-kilometer (280-mile) drive to the bride’s family in Binh Dinh city, where the wedding was scheduled to take place later Monday.
