Government officials on all levels are offering thoughts and condolences for the victims, as well as thanks to first responders after a double-decker OC Transpo bus collision, which claimed three lives at Ottawa's Westboro Station.

The incident happened Friday at 3:50 p.m., injuring 23 and sending 17 to hospital.

Nepean's MP said the crash reminded her of another devastating incident involving an OC Transpo bus in Barrhaven back in 2013.
