The bus collided with the platform at the Westboro bus station at about 3:50 p.m. ET, he said.

The Chief also clarified initial information the three victims killed were two passengers on the bus and a pedestrian waiting on the platform, as he said they are now getting conflicting information and will update the public as soon as possible. Police say they were taken to local hospitals. "Most of the most serious injuries occurred on the upper right side of the bus".

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

Four hours after the crash, Ottawa Hospital said that seven patients were in a critical condition and nine in a stable condition.

This the second major crash in recent years involving an Ottawa transit bus. "And there was a bit of blood on the floor", Bilal Gill said.
