Bus crash at Ottawa's Westboro station fatal, police chief confirms



Some people were killed and many more injured when an OC Transpo bus slammed into a bus shelter at Westboro station at the start of Friday afternoon rush hour, Ottawa police say.

The single-vehicle collision involving the westbound 269 bus to Kanata happened on the Transitway around 3:50 p.m. 

Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau confirmed around 6 p.m. there were "some fatalities," but did not say how many or whether those killed were on board the bus at the time of the crash.

Before the chief's remarks, police said at least 17 people were injured in the crash.


Vibes to the injured and the souls we lost.
