Fatal bus-train crash reveals diverse safety laws

September 30, 2013
By DAVE WERNER (dwerner151@ verizon.net) , Franklin County Traffic Safety Board

Shortly before 9 a.m. on the morning of September 18th an Ottawa transit bus drove through flashing red lights and crossing gates into a VIA rail passenger train leaving Ottawa for Toronto. The result was six people on the bus killed, including the driver, and around 30 injured. The National Transportation Board of Canada will ultimately render their verdict of what caused the crash, but preliminary factors already disclosed bring to light the diverse vehicle and traffic laws in different provinces of Canada, as is also the case in the United States.
