(AP) A pickup truck slammed into another vehicle Sunday in the resort town of Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, killing eight and injuring seven others, police reported.

Police spokesman Maximo Baez says seven people are injured from the crash near the northern resort town of Puerto Plata.

The injured were being treated Monday at a hospital in Puerto Plata.

The eight people killed were all adults and were in back of the second pickup.

Most of the victims were Dominican but two of those killed were Haitian and the nationalities of two others were unknown.

They were returning from a church service late Sunday in the town of Imbert, when a tire blew out on the other pickup and the driver control, slamming into their vehicle and sending it off the road.
