Passenger train collides with bus in Ottawa, several dead

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A passenger train collided with a double-decker city bus in Ottawa on Wednesday, killing at least five people, an emergency official said. Television images showed a heavily damaged red double-decker bus, with firefighters and ambulances at the scene. The front of the bus appeared to be sheared off by the collision. Ottawa Fire Services spokesman Marc Messier told CTV News the initial estimate is that five people have been killed. VIA Rail, which operates the national passenger service in Canada, confirmed the crash and said there were no major injuries reported on the train. The crash occurred in the west end of Ottawa, Canada's capital city. Canada's two big railroads - Canadian National Railway Co and Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd - are reviewing safety standards after a deadly train crash on July 6 that killed 50 people and destroyed the center of a small Quebec town.
