Three people died when a bus hit a station platform in Ottawa Canada authorities said

A section of the Ottawa Transitway will remain closed today and police are blocking off nearby roads as they continue their investigation into the tragic bus crash that left three dead and almost two dozen injured yesterday afternoon.

Ottawa Police say that the accident took place at 3:50 p.m.at Westboro Station.

Emergency crews respond to a deadly double-decker bus crash at Westboro Station in Ottawa, January 11, 2019.

She says their names will not be released at this time. The Ottawa Hospital confirmed on Twitter that it had received nine patients in critical condition from the crash.

OC Transpo, which is in charge of Ottawa's public transportation, tweeted on its verified account, "Buses are being detoured as a result" of the collision.

The three have not been identified by Ottawa police.

"Our thoughts are also with the others on that bus, at that station - those directly involved and those who witnessed the collision". "An investigation is now underway on the cause of the collision", Bordeleau said.

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. Investigators were set to stay at the scene throughout Friday night, with temperatures expected to drop to minus 22 degrees Celsius (minus 7.6 degrees Fahrenheit) through Saturday. "And there was a bit of blood on the floor", Bilal Gill said.

The driver was detained at the scene and he was set to be interviewed by police.

"A lot of people started screaming, people at the front who got pinned under their seats". Emergency workers immediately rushed to the scene to rescue passengers who were trapped on the upper level. "There was definitely people pinned". "It was chaos at first".

OC Transpo has been struggling with a bus driver shortage and chronic service problems as they transition from busses to the new, delayed LRT line.
