Riding public transit is like...

...sweet baby jebus...

OTTAWA -- Three people were killed and 23 injured when a double-decker city bus struck a transit shelter in Ottawa on Friday afternoon.

The driver of the bus was arrested at the scene. Police Chief Charles Bordeleau wouldn't say why she was detained.
The last time this happened, the driver didn't walk away...
There were 83 people on the OC Transpo bus when it crashed into passenger train No. 51 the morning of Sept. 18, 2013.

UPDATE: Ottawa cops climb down from "arrest"
Ottawa police said they have released the driver of the OC Transpo double-decker bus "unconditionally" after arresting her and bringing her in for questioning following the crash Friday.

Every driver involved should be charged every time a crash results in injury to anyone other than the driver(s). There are no auto "accidents" - only cases of negligence and rare acts of God.

c'mon, people get rear-ended or
t-boned all the time... and it's
not their fault.

investigate, find evidence then
lay charges.
