Four people were killed and four others seriously injured after a car rammed into members of a wedding party in Spain following a fight, police said.

Officers have detained three suspects and are searching for a fourth over the deadly incident, a spokesman for the national police told AFP.

The fight erupted in front of a restaurant that was hosting the wedding in Torrejon de Ardoz, some 25 kilometers (16 miles) northeast of Madrid.

After the dispute, a car rammed into wedding guests and then sped away.

"When we arrived on the scene, we found four people had died of multiple fractures," said Carlos Polo, head of Madrid emergency services.

Four others who were injured have been transferred to the hospital for treatment, he said. 

The vehicle suspected of having carried out the attack was spotted 50 kilometers from the scene of the accident and its three occupants were arrested, police said.

Local media identified the trio as a father and his two children.

Police said they were searching for a fourth suspect alleged to have been involved. (AFP)
