3 people killed, 2 dozen others injured as bus crashes into shelter

Police and first responders work at the scene where a double-decker city bus struck a transit shelter in Ottawa on Jan. 11 2019

Three people were killed and 23 others were injured just before rush hour on Friday after a double-decker bus crashed at a busy transit station in Ottawa. It plowed along the platform and into the overhanging roof of the transit shelter, carving deep into the vehicle's second deck.

Three people died; two were believed to have been on the bus, and one person was waiting on the platform.

Police Chief Charles Bordeleau would not say why she was arrested rather than submitting to questions voluntarily.

At least 3 people were killed and more than a dozen others were injured, according to the Ottawa Citizen newspaper.

He says they will also have to survey the wreckage using drones, go over video and data gathered from the bus and bystanders. The bus driver was arrested.

The bus was nearly at its 90-passenger capacity when the crash occurred, police say.

His 64-65 weekend gave him a tie for seventh, and he now heads off to Singapore with hopes of earning a spot in the British Open. Andrew Putnam took the lead over Kuchar as the two began their third round as the one-time PGA Tour victor impressed.

"Outstanding investigators are doing that work, but it takes time", Bordeleau said.

Ottawa police held a press conference the day after the accident, but did not reveal the victims' names. Shortly after 7 p.m., police said they had completed their documentation of the crash scene and that local roads - not counting the Transitway - had reopened.

Officials from Transport Canada and Ontario's Ministry of Transportation are also investigating.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson tweeted he was shocked to hear of the "horrific incident". Despite mid-afternoon temperatures of about minus-15, it had not snowed in Ottawa Friday and the busway is treated as a top priority for the city's snowplows, salters and sanders.

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".

Six years ago in Ottawa, another double decker bus collided with a passenger train.
