The Carleton University community was shocked and saddened to learn about the OC Transpo bus crash at the Westboro station late this afternoon. The university extends its sympathies to everyone caught in this tragedy.
Officials from the City of Ottawa and Police Services confirmed that 23 people were injured, some seriously, and that sadly there are three casualties.
The university is continuing to monitor the emergency response and is prepared to support members of the Carleton community as required.
The city has established an information line for families of victims that can be reached at 1 (855) 797-8875.
Any Carleton students who require counselling services can email email@example.com with their name and phone number and we will be in touch shortly.
The flag at Carleton is being lowered as a tribute to the victims.
Further updates will be provided to the Carleton community as appropriate.
