At least 4 killed, 40 injured in bus crash on German highway

At least four people have died and about 40 have been injured in a bus crash on a highway in central Germany.

Police say the crash Tuesday near the town of Bad Hersfeld, about 100 kilometers (60 miles) northeast of Frankfurt, occurred after a car collided with the bus, causing it to veer off the road and down a slope.

The bus was carrying a group of senior citizens from southern Germany.
