You may have heard of it, the collision between a passenger train and a city bus in Ottawa and you also may have heard all the questioning about that accident.

People are asking questions and writing sympathy comments on the Internet.

 

Obviously, people are right to do what they do; they actually show the victims and victim’s family and friends that they really care. Also, by asking questions, for example: « What happened to the bus driver? Why didn’t he stop when he saw the train? » We can see people’s worries about that tragic accident.

 

For now, all we know is that including the bus driver, this accident killed six persons and no one was killed or has been major injured.

 

I found the information in an article on the National Post : http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/09/18/via-train-and-ottawa-city-bus-collide-reports-of-multiple-fatalities/. You can read it if you want to see pictures of the bus that is, by the way highly damaged, or watch witnesses or train passengers talk about what they’ve seen this morning 8:50 a.m. A lot of persons posted comments via Twitter, so you can see some of the sympathy messages and questions people asked.

 

The article also reports the TSB’s (Transportation Safety Board) solution to learn more about this kind of accidents. Basically, what they are saying is that each lead locomotive should have an in-cab video camera, so the experts can see what actually conducted to an accident.
