Icelandic Couple Dies in Car Crash in Turkey

death-announcementsA young Icelandic couple who were traveling in Mugla, southwest Turkey, died in a car accident yesterday. Their seven-month old child survived the accident unharmed and the Icelandic consul in Turkey is working on bringing the baby back to Iceland.

The car the couple was driving crashed into a larger vehicle which landed off the road but the couple’s car hit a barrier. All passengers in the larger vehicle survived but some of them were seriously injured and were taken to hospital in Mugla, Morgunbladid reports.

The Icelandic consul in Turkey is expected to arrive in Mugla today. He will assist the couple’s relatives with picking up the baby and arrange for the child to be brought back home.

It was raining intensely in Mugla when the accident occurred. It is believed that the driver lost control of the car on the wet road and drove into the opposite lane where it crashed into the larger vehicle.
