Two of the men were in a car which was thrown off a bridge on Nýbýlavegur in the early hours of Friday morning. Three other individuals were in the car but they weren’t admitted to the ICU, Morgunbladid reports.

The other two men were in a serious two-vehicle crash on Reykjanesbraut on Saturday. Six people were brought to the hospital but four of those injured weren’t admitted to the ICU. The cars had to be taken apart with cutters to get the passengers out.
