PARIS – At least four children were killed Thursday when a French passenger train struck a bus, BBC News reports.

The collision occurred between Millas and Saint-Féliu-d'Amont, about 530 miles south of Paris. The train was traveling at 50 mph when it struck the vehicle at a grade crossing, splitting the bus in half. At least four children between the ages of 13 and 17 were killed and 20 others were injured.

French President Emmanuel Macron offered his condolences, saying, “All my thoughts for the victims of this terrible accident involving a school bus, as well as their families. The state is fully mobilised to help them."
