PARIS (AP) - At least 42 people are dead after a bus transporting retirees on a day trip collided with a truck on a country road in French wine country.

The local mayor tells RTL radio that the truck driver lost control of the vehicle and struck the bus, and both vehicles quickly caught fire.

He says the bus driver was able to open the door, but only eight people escaped. Four of them are in serious condition.
