At least 21 revellers were killed en route to a wedding when their truck flew off a bridge, police said Wednesday, the latest horrific crash on India's accident-prone roads.

The truck, carrying more than 40 passengers, smashed through a protective railing in central Madhya Pradesh state late Tuesday and plunged nearly 20 metres to a dry riverbed below.

Police in Sidhi district said 21 people were injured, most of them critically, in the accident some 560 kilometres (350 miles) from the state capital Bhopal.
