(CNN)A double-decker bus crashed in Ottawa, Ontario, on Friday, killing three people and injuring at least 20, Mayor Jim Watson said at a news conference.
The bus collided with the platform at the Westboro bus station at about 3:50 p.m. ET, he said. Twenty-three people were hurt and taken to hospitals and three people died — two on the bus and one on the platform, Watson said.
Ottawa Police Chief Charles Bordeleau said several people were trapped in the bus before being freed.
