Ottawa paramedics say a woman is in critical condition after being run over by an OC Transpo bus at Tunney's Pasture Station late Friday night.

Paramedics were called to the transit station at around 11 p.m.

The 31-year-old victim suffered serious leg injuries and was taken to the trauma centre, paramedics said. 

In a written statement, OC Transpo chief safety officer Paul Treboutat said it appears the woman fell while running to catch a bus.

"At approximately 10:40 p.m. last night an operator at Tunney's Pasture Station reported to the Transit Operations Control Centre that a customer running to catch a bus that had left the platform, fell and was struck. Ottawa Police and paramedics responded to the scene. OC Transpo fully cooperated with police," the statement says.

"OC Transpo’s top priority continues to be the safety and security of our customers and our staff. We take this incident very seriously and have taken the immediate action of starting an internal safety investigation. Our thoughts go out to the individual and their family."

Ottawa police have yet to respond to a request for comment. Top Stories
