Three people were killed and 23 others injured after a double-decker bus in Canada crashed into a bus platform, officials said Friday.

The driver of the bus was arrested at the scene, Chief Charles Bordeleau of the Ottawa police added at an evening news conference at Ottawa city hall.

"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. Police say they were taken to local hospitals.

The crash is the second involving an Ottawa transit bus in recent years.

Sgt. Cameron Graham, of the force's collision investigation unit, said investigators would conduct multiple drone flights over the scene of the wreckage, as well as gather data from the vehicle itself and any available video surveillance. Another was wheeled on a gurney in obvious distress, wailing loudly enough to be heard on an overpass above.

He said he could tell there would be deaths given the devastation at the scene. "The front of the bus was essentially cut off and or demolished and firefighters were working to cut away the windows of the top floor of the bus". "And as I got a better look, I saw how damaged the front of the bus was and it came obviously clearly right after that people were really, seriously hurt". This particular bus was not scheduled to stop at the Westboro station, which is another aspect being probed in the investigation.
