Several Deaths, Many Hurt in Ottawa Double-Decker Bus Crash

Westboro crash

The accident happened during Friday rush hour at the Westboro station in a neighborhood west of downtown Ottawa.

"I heard a bump and I saw the bus crashing into Westboro Station", the local student told CTV Ottawa, still visibly shaken from what he had seen.

I also want to applaud the heroic efforts of our first responders, our emergency room nurses and doctors, and everyone who answered the call today. The most seriously injured, there was accordingly, in the upper deck, as Ottawa police chief Charles Bordeleau said.

The investigation will take a long time and likely will mean the closure of the busway and nearby roads for at least many hours, Bordeleau said.

23 people were sustained injuries and have been taken to hospital.

Myles Cassidy, the chief of the Ottawa paramedic service, said that a total of 25 patients had been transported to the hospital from the scene.

Also, we are giving chances to the young players and finding with them the regularity to be consistent when we need them to be. And, Unai Emery will be relieved to have a number of players returning to his squad this week.

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 said new information has surfaced to challenge that account, but did not provide further details.

This the second major crash in recent years involving an Ottawa transit bus.

On the images was the hard wrecked the Front of the bus. The third had been standing on the station platform, Watson said. I felt like vomiting a couple of times.

Politicians, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Doug Ford, tweeted messages of support.

Mailloux says his first thought was for his wife and son, who were scheduled to be travelling through the area shortly after the crash. In that case, an investigation found that the cause was a combination of excessive speed, a hard curve before the tracks and driver distraction from video monitors showing the upper deck.
