Three people were killed and 23 injured when a double-decker city bus struck a transit shelter in Ottawa on Friday afternoon, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson says.
Nepean's MP said the crash reminded her of another devastating incident involving an OC Transpo bus in Barrhaven back in 2013.
A double-deck city bus smashed into a transit shelter during rush hour on Friday.
Twenty-three people were hurt and taken to hospitals and three people died - two on the bus and one on the platform, Watson said.
"That work continues this morning and no information on the identity of the three will be released at this time", a news release stated.
OC Transpo also tweeted about the crash, saying they were "keeping all those affected by the tragedy at Westboro Station today in our thoughts and prayers".
On Friday, Ottawa Police Chief Charles Bordeleau said officers were trying to determine what caused the collision, adding that the weather - icy roads and bitter cold - could be a factor.

Bus crash at Westboro Station on the Transitway in Ottawa.
During a press conference, Ottawa Police said the bus driver had been taken into custody.
The investigation will take a long time and likely will mean the closure of the busway and nearby roads for at least many hours, Bordeleau said.
Investigators were expected to be on the scene through the night, with frigid temperatures in Ottawa expected to dip down to minus 22 degrees Celsius overnight. "And there was a bit of blood on the floor", Bilal Gill said.
"A lot of people started screaming, people at the front who got pinned under their seats".
OC Transpo general manager John Manconi told reporters the bus could have been holding as many as 90 passengers and that the agency would be co-operating fully with the investigation. Emergency workers immediately rushed to the scene to rescue passengers who were trapped on the upper level.
