MEHABUBNAGAR, INDIA (AP) - Officials in southern India say many of the 42 people killed when a bus crashed into a roadside barrier early this morning were burned alive.

Only the bus driver and six passengers managed to escape through a window, but many of those inside had been asleep.

Officials say the crash happened after the driver tried to pass another vehicle.
