Russia bus crash kills 18

Eighteen people lost their lives when a bus and a gravel truck collided in a Moscow suburb. Another 25 were injured. A fleet of 30 ambulances was sent to the scene of Saturday's crash. Witnesses who rushed to help said they faced some grisly sights. (SOUNDBITE)(Russian) NADEZHDA TOKAREVA, WITNESS, SAYING: "I carried out two girls and a woman - she was rather slim - and also an old lady. The third woman, I only managed to get her out with the help of a guy. When we approached there was a guy who was cut in half. We didn't try to rescue him." Moscow's deputy mayor said the truck had smashed into the bus. He said the truck's load of gravel poured into the bus, making the rescue operation more difficult. The cause of the crash wasn't immediately clear.
