A truck crashed into a crowd of mourners on Saturday in the southeastern Turkish province of Kahramanmaraş, killing five people and injuring 25, Agence France-Presse reported, citing officials.

According to local press reports, the brakes of the truck failed, sending it hurtling down a road overlooking a cemetery where dozens of people had gathered for a burial.

“At this stage, there are five dead and 25 injured. Some of the injuries are life-threatening,” said provincial governor Mükerrem Ünlüer, according to Turkish media.

Images shown by Turkey’s DHA agency showed a truck lying upside down next to a white car that was crushed.
