Several deaths, many hurt in Ottawa bus crash

A bus crash at Westboro Station in Ottawa

The crash took place west of downtown at 3:50 p.m., just as dusk was beginning to settle on the coldest day of the winter so far in Canada's capital.

The local police reported that at least three people died after a bus crashed into a bus shelter at Westboro Station in Ottawa. Twenty-three people were hurt and taken to hospitals, he said.

Photos from the scene show that one side of second floor was partially crushed by the roof, and multiple people were being treated next to the bus.

She told Global News that what chilled her the most is that she'd been sitting in an identical double-decker bus as she passed, in the same upper-right section that saw the most damage from the impact.

Sgt. Graham said six investigators are now assigned to the crash, which is expected to be a "long, detailed and complex investigation".

"That was based on initial information", Bordeleau said at Saturday's press conference.

Officers believe the bus was at or near capacity, meaning about 90 people were on board, and they're hoping to interview everyone involved.

Bordeleau made it clear while police expect to release the scene Saturday, work collecting evidence, analyzing photos, videos and data, along with interviewing the almost 90 people on the bus is going to be a "slow, painstaking process".

"I saw ladders against it and I saw people getting pulled out the top and I wasn't sure what happened", she told CTV News Channel.

On the images was the hard wrecked the Front of the bus.

His partner usually gets off the bus at that station when coming home from work but she hadn't gone in on Friday, he said, and now they're checking in with all their family and friends who live in the area to see if they're OK. I felt like vomiting a couple of times.

"I want to send my deepest condolences to the families of victims and everyone affected by today's tragic bus crash", Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted.

"Please keep victims, witnesses, families and our fantastic first responders in your thoughts". The investigation into that case found the cause was a combination of excessive speed, a hard curve before the tracks and driver distraction.
