Double-decker bus crashes into bus station in Ottawa

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said more than 20 people had been injured in the collision, noting some of them remain in critical condition.

"The upper deck on the bus was compromised and several people were trapped on the upper level for a period of time", the news release said. He was in his apartment across the street from the station when he started hearing sirens just after 4 p.m. The driver was questioned by police, he said.

"Based on the way it looked, if there was anybody at the front of the bus at the top".

His partner usually gets off the bus at that station when coming home from work but she hadn't gone in on Friday, he said, and they were checking in with family and friends who live in the area to see if they're OK. The double-decker bus appears to have crashed into the roof that hangs over the platform at the station.
