All the victims are aged 18 and 19. The accident happened on the Aarschotsesteenweg around 4:30 AM this morning. A car crashed straight into a lorry that was coming from the other direction. Investigators are trying to establish what exactly happened.
Leuven police spokesman Marc Vranckx: "Three people were dead at the scene. A fourth person was seriously injured and was taken to hospital where he's fighting for his life.
The road had to be closed for a while, but could be reopened around 10 AM after it had been cleared.
