Debris is pictured across the road after a van headed to a wedding party crashed in the early hours of the morning along a road in Quang Nam province on July 30, 2018. 

Fourteen members of the same family were killed in a car crash in central Vietnam on 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 neighboring province, a police officer said.

Their 16-seater van collided with a container truck about 2:30am, killing 13 people instantly. Another died later in hospital.

"All victims' bodies were brought back to their home for burial. We are treating some of the injured in a local hospital," the policeman said, requesting anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the press.

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