Car crash in France leaving 42 dead and several injured

At least 42 people were killed and several injured when a bus and truck crashed and burst into flames in southwest France.

The crash happened with a truck carrying lumber on a remote road in the famed wine country. This is the worst crash in France in more than 30 years. 

Reports say that all of the passengers killed were members of a retirement group on a one day tour. 

The French Interior Ministry is warning the number of dead may rise. Four of the injured are in a serious condition: two with head traumas, two with serious burns.   

This morning the French President promised a full investigation into what happened.
