Another passenger was seriously injured but is in stable condition at the Landspitali Intensive Care Unit. They were transported with an ambulance flight to Reykjavik, where the woman died shortly after arrival.

The other two passengers suffered less injury and were transported to the Ísafjördur Hospital for treatment. Clippers had to be used to get the victims out of the vehicle. The people, all foreigners, are around twenty years old and were travelling in Iceland.

Ísafjördur’s available police forces as well as ambulances and an equipment car were sent to the scene of the accident.

According to the Ísafjördur police, the car was found far off the road, on the fjord’s shore.
