Pictures posted to social media show a large presence of first responders at the busy transit station, and substantial damage to the front end of the bus.

The driver was taken to the police station for an interview and released Saturday without conditions, Ottawa Police Chief Charles Bordeleau said.

Officials initially reported that of the three people killed, two passengers were on the bus and a third person was on the platform.

He went outside and came across a "chaotic" scene, with at least 30 emergency vehicles, including seven or eight fire trucks, and lots of police and bystanders, he said.

"There's no question that the weather adds complexity at the scene", said Bordeleau said. "The reasons why we arrested her are part of the investigation, we're not going to get into that, but our investigative unit is out there collecting all the evidence and then we'll see where it takes us". In the case of the death victims were according to his information, two passengers and a man who had been standing at the bus stop Westboro to the West of the city centre. Shortly after 7 p.m., police said they had completed their documentation of the crash scene and that local roads - not counting the Transitway - had reopened. Of those transported, 14 were in critical condition and 11 were in serious condition, paramedic chief Myles Cassidy said in the news conference.

"Where I was (at the back of the bus), there was blood pooling underneath the seats just in front of me", he told CTV Ottawa, describing the immediate aftermath of the crash.

The investigation into that case found the cause was a combination of excessive speed, a hard curve before the tracks and driver distraction.
