Three people are dead and more than a dozen are injured Friday afternoon after a westbound double-decker OC Transpo bus filled with commuters smashed into a bus shelter at Westboro Station, this newspaper has learned.

The extent of the injuries of those who survived is not yet known.

Photos taken by witnesses on the scene showed the front of the bus smashed in and victims lying on the ground. The crash happened at 3:50 p.m.

Multiple first responders rushed to the scene. Paramedics said the crash involved multiple injuries and some of the injuries were critical. One person was being treated at the scene.

Three people are dead and more than a dozen are injured Friday afternoon after a westbound double-decker OC Transpo bus filled with commuters smashed into a bus shelter at Westboro Station, this newspaper has learned.

The extent of the injuries of those who survived is not yet known.

Photos taken by witnesses on the scene showed the front of the bus smashed in and victims lying on the ground. The crash happened at 3:50 p.m.

Multiple first responders rushed to the scene. Paramedics said the crash involved multiple injuries and some of the injuries were critical. One person was being treated at the scene.

Coun. Jeff Leiper said more than a dozen people have been taken to hospital.

First responders used ladders to get to the damaged second floor of the bus.

A passenger on the bus said it was Route 269, heading to Kanata. The bus appeared to be three-quarters full.

The bus took off part of the shelter’s structure, said a paramedic. One witness described half of the second story of the bus being gone.

The Civic campus of The Ottawa Hospital declared a Code Orange at 4:37 p.m. The hospital would call a Code Orange in the event of a disaster in the community. The hospital said it received nine patients in critical condition.

The Queensway Carleton Hospital said it received one patient by ambulance and several walk-in patients from the crash.

The number of fatalities was confirmed as of early Friday evening.

Mayor Jim Watson asked residents to stay out of the area “in order to assist first responders with their work.” He said more information would be provided at a press conference at 7 p.m. Friday.

“I was shocked to hear of this horrific incident at Westboro Station,” said the mayor in a statement on Twitter. “My first thoughts are with those who have been injured and their families. I have asked staff to ensure all necessary resources are made available to assist them through this difficult time.”

As multiple ambulances, police and firefighters rushed to the scene, OC Transpo was asked to stop sending buses into the Transitway to make it easier for first responders to access victims.

One eyewitness who preferred not to be named described the bus driver hitting ice, which launched the bus into the side of the Westboro transit station, taking out a sign and then hitting an overhang on the side of the shelter.

The damage “goes back about 10 rows.”

The witness said the bus was full and the collision was “very serious.”

Several witnesses described a scene eerily similar to the 2013 bus-train crash that killed six people. Photos showed injured passengers lying on the ground being treated.

An eyewitness said she saw at least 15 emergency vehicle rushing down Scott Street toward the crash.

Another eyewitness said she heard sirens, and when she looked over the railing above the station she saw that “the whole top of the bus was totalled.”

The top section of the front of the double-decker bus was smashed in by the shelter’s overhang, all the way back to the stairs on the bus, so people were unable to get down from the top floor, she said.

“I heard a lot of people screaming, trying to get off the bus. They were stuck in there.” Emergency responders were smashing the windows, yelling, “glass.”

“I couldn’t believe it, me and my best friend fight to sit at the front of the bus. And now I’m just … terrified, it’s absolutely heartbreaking.”

She saw a man pulled from the bus, bandaged and strapped to a board. “He was in pretty bad condition, I don’t even know how to describe it, he had his head wrapped but there was a lot of blood.”

Buses were being rerouted from Westboro Station onto Richmond Road near McRae. Scott Street is closed from Winona to McRae, as well as the Transitway between Westboro and Tunney’s Pasture stations.

The city said Churchill Seniors Centre at 345 Richmond Rd. is open to residents seeking information about family members involved in the collision. The Ottawa police’s victims crisis unit, Red Cross and Salvation Army were also at the centre.
