    At least 42 people died in a crash between a bus and a logging truck in France, NBC News reported. 

    The local prefecture in Gironde said that the bus was carrying a group of elderly people when it crashed with the truck at about 7:30 a.m. local time (1:30 a.m. ET) around Puisseguin. It said eight people were injured — four seriously, including two people with head trauma and two with serious burns.

    Some of the survivors managed to escape by smashing windows on the bus, France's BFMTV reported.

    The crash is one of the country's worst road accidents in France's recent history, NBC News reported.
