The Ottawa Hospital has one patient in critical condition, six in serious condition and four in stable condition, related to the bus collision at Westboro Station.

Three people were pronounced dead Friday night after the incident in which 23 people were injured, 17 of whom needed to be taken to hospital.

At 3:50 p.m. Friday, the double-decker bus, OC Transpo Route 269 on its way to Bridlewood, hit the roof of Westboro Station which overhangs the platform where transit riders wait for the buses.

One of the deceased was standing on that platform, while the two others were on the bus.

The three have not been identified by Ottawa police.
