A helicopter crashed Sunday into the garden terrace of a restaurant in southeastern France, killing three people on the ground and severely injuring a fourth, rescue workers said.

The Alouette 2 aircraft slammed into the garden of the Chez Bob restaurant along a highway between the towns of Salin-de-Giraud and Arles, rescue workers said.

A woman whose leg was severed in the crash was taken to a hospital.

Police were investigating. The four occupants of the helicopter were not injured, officials said.
