Police have named the four Argentinian men killed when their car ploughed head-on into and under a truck near National Park, in the central North Island. The men had been working in the tourism industry and were returning from playing indoor soccer in Ohakune to their backpackers at National Park on Wednesday night when they pulled out to overtake a truck just north of the Makatote Viaduct and collided with a truck coming the other way. The truck went right over their Holden Commodore, dragging it for some distance and the four men died at the scene. Two were thrown from the car.
