Ottawa City Bus Collide with Train

At least five people are dead after a Via Rail train and an Ottawa city bus collided in the city’s southwest end Wednesday morning, Ottawa Fire says. Witnesses say the bus appeared to run through warning symbols at a train crossing.
Live updates on the Ottawa bus crash



The front end of the double-decker OC Transpo bus is severely damaged, images from the scene near Woodroffe Avenue and Fallowfield Road show. Witnesses say the front part of the bus was ripped off by the impact, which occurred in the middle of the morning commute, at about 8:50 a.m.

Robert Kurtenbach, who was on the top level of the bus, told the Ottawa Citizen that the bus didn’t appear to slow down at all as the train went through the crossing.

He was thrown forward by the impact and twisted his leg, but said he wasn’t seriously injured.

“I could see bodies lying there,” he said. He said he could see “more than two or three” people that were severely injured and he could not see the driver at all.

Pascal Lolgis, who witnessed the crash, told The Canadian Press the bus drove through a lowered crossing barrier.

Mechanical failure? Was the driver under the influence? Suicidal?

I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out the driver was completely at fault. OC Transpo is a terrible transit service with many notoriously awful drivers.

This is shitty, shocked that the train derailed though. I am going with driver fault, although the 4 arms are still intact so that could mean the signals were not working.
