On Thursday, three tourists were killed in southern Iceland after their jeep plunged off a bridge into a dry river bed. The local source has identified the dead tourists as British nationals.

Seven tourists were in the car, which fell about 20 feet (6 meters), “and three of them did not survive the accident,” said South Iceland Police Commissioner Grimur Hergeirsson.

Mr. Hergeirsson continued, “The other four were transported by helicopter to the hospital in Reykjavik.”

Local media reported that one of the dead, among the three, was a child, and the four were badly wounded and in critical condition.

UK Police told the source that “at least four of the involved were British citizens,” while local media reported that all of the passengers in the Toyota Land Cruiser were British nationals only.

The main cause of the accident was not immediately known.

Further details awaited.
