PARIS, France — A bus carrying dozens of British tourists has driven off the road in northern France and crashed into a ditch, killing one person.
The British Embassy says 23 people were injured, including six seriously. The cause of the accident early Sunday is unclear, but the bus was the only vehicle involved.
The bus was returning from an Italian ski resort when it went off a highway near Reims, a city 140 kilometres northeast of Paris. It was headed to Birmingham in England.
The driver was among the injured. LCI television, citing the local prosecutor, says the driver tested negative for alcohol and drugs. The prosecutor said the driver would be questioned after he is discharged from the hospital.
