Ottawa bus-train collision kills six, injures 30

London, Sept. 19 (ANI): At least six people have been killed and more than 30 injured in a collision between a passenger train and a bus in Canada's capital, Ottawa.

The crash between the double-decker bus and a Via Rail train occurred in the morning rush hour, BBC reports.

The front of the bus was ripped off in the crash, while Via Rail's Ottawa-Toronto route came to a halt.

Canada's National Transportation Safety Board (TSB) officials are investigating at the scene.

According to the report, the bus driver just didn't stop the bus and went into a lowered barrier of the guard rail.

The transit Union President Craig Watson confirmed that the driver of the bus was among the dead.

Eight other people injured in the crash were listed in critical condition, the report added. (ANI)
