3 people dead after double-decker bus crash in Ottawa

The city is still reeling after a westbound OC Transpo double-decker bus hit the Westboro station shelter just as afternoon rush hour was getting underway, in a scene that witnesses have described as "chaos".

Ottawa Emergency Services transported the injured from Westboro Station to a local hospital.

"Something led us to having to arrest the individual and take them to the station", Bordeleau said.

"Most of the serious injuries were on the upper-right side of the bus", Bordeleau said.

Investigators are still working to identify the victims of the crash, police said.

The majority of the patients injured in the crash have been released from hospital, police said, with just one remaining in critical condition while six are listed as serious and four are considered stable.

Photos and video from the scene showed emergency responders treating a number of people on the ground, as others used ladders to unload passengers trapped on the bus' upper level.

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". "And there was a bit of blood on the floor", he said.

The crash is the second involving an Ottawa transit bus in recent years.

"Based on the way it looked, if there was anybody at the front of the bus at the top". "I think everyone on my bus felt the same, and then the whole way home no one was speaking".

Mailloux says his first thought was for his wife and son, who were scheduled to be travelling through the area shortly after the crash.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was in Saskatchewan, tweeted his "deepest condolences to the families of victims".
