Tragedy struck just south of Paris when a train derailed Friday evening killing at least seven people and injuring dozens more. Authorities have warned that the death toll will rise as the train was carrying over 300 passengers.
The crash occurred 12 miles south of Paris as witnesses describe the accident that caused the train to suddenly jerk, as white smoke could be seen leaving the train.
An investigation will continue to discover how the tragedy occurred and how many more lives were lost as a result.
