Three killed, 6 in­jured in col­li­sion in Swe­den

The Intelligencer (Belleville) - - WORLD NEWS -

HELSINKI — Swedish po­lice and res­cue of­fi­cials say that three young peo­ple were killed in a col­li­sion of two cars in north­ern Swe­den, and six oth­ers have been in­jured.

Ulf Ax­els­son, head of res­cue op­er­a­tions, said that at least two of the in­jured were chil­dren in child seats. He gave no fur­ther de­tails.

The crash oc­curred on a bend of a main high­way near Ly­ck­sele in the north­ern prov­ince of La­p­land in what res­cue ser­vices de­scribed as “slightly icy” con­di­tions. How­ever, po­lice de­clined to con­firm de­tails pend­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Po­lice spokesman Michael Lil­jen­berg told Swedish news agency TT that a tech­ni­cal team would in­ves­ti­gate be­fore they could de­ter­mine a pos­si­ble cause of the col­li­sion.

No other de­tails were im­me­di­ately avail­able.
