Bus crash kills three in Ottawa

Westboro crash

Bordeleau said the bus driver was arrested at the scene and would be questioned as part of an investigation into the cause of the crash.

The accident happened during Friday rush hour at the Westboro station in a neighborhood west of downtown Ottawa. "I can't see how they would've been able to get away from that", he said.

Authorities responded to the scene and discovered the vehicle "had run into the bus platform at Westboro station", which resulted in numerous injuries on the bus and platform, according to police.

Ottawa resident Brian McGregor came out on Saturday morning to bring coffee and muffins to crews at the scene.

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

"My first thoughts are with those who have been injured and their families". Police were urging people to avoid the area.

On Thursday night, Barron County's Sheriff, Chris Fitzgerald, announced the good news on the department's Twitter page. When police arrived four minutes later, no gun or suspects were found at the scene and there was no sign of Jayme.

Bilal Gill was at the back of the Route 269 bus - which doesn't stop at the Westboro station in the afternoons and heads straight from Tunney's Pasture to Bayshore - when the collision occurred.

Those who have pictures or video of the crash are being asked to get in touch with police, while passengers on the bus missing property are also asked to reach out.

The press conference was aired by the local Global News outlet.

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

"Where I was (at the back of the bus), there was blood pooling underneath the seats just in front of me", he told CTV Ottawa, describing the immediate aftermath of the crash. The investigation into that case found the cause was a combination of excessive speed, a hard curve before the tracks and driver distraction.
