3 killed as Ottawa bus crashes into bus shelter

Double-decker bus crashes into bus station in Ottawa

Monica Lung was on her daily bus ride home from Carleton University in Ottawa when she passed the horrific scene at Westboro station, where a double-decker bus jumped the curb and smashed into the transit shelter.

Images of the crash during the afternoon rush hour showed upper deck seats hanging from a gaping hole at the front of the bus, firefighters on ladders trying to reach the injured and a lineup of 25 ambulances waiting in the biting cold to take them to hospitals.

Meanwhile, local police chief Charles Bordeleau said the authorities had arrested the bus driver at the scene for subsequent questioning.

They will also have to survey the wreckage using drones, go over video and data gathered from the bus and bystanders, said the police chief.

President Trump, "There was no collusion, Matt Whitaker is right".
The Times reported that FBI investigators looked into whether Trump's actions could be considered a threat to national security. The deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, appointed Mueller soon after Comey's firing in May 2017 to lead the investigation.

The Ottawa Police Service Crash Investigation Unit is also on site and will look into this incident. The bus was headed to Kanata, a more distant Ottawa suburb.

"Outstanding investigators are doing that work, but it takes time", Bordeleau said. In the case of the death victims were according to his information, two passengers and a man who had been standing at the bus stop Westboro to the West of the city centre.

Injured passengers were being treated by paramedics on the ground surrounding the bus.

Ontario's Ministry of Transportation and Transport Canada remain involved in the investigation, he added.

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

Watson publicly thanked the many politicians at various levels of government for their calls of support "as our city continues to cope with the tragic events of the past 24 hours".

It's the second fatal OC Transpo double-decker bus accident the city has witnessed in five years.

In 2013, an Ottawa bus collided with a Via Rail train in suburban Barrhaven, killing six people.
