OTTAWA — Six people died Wednesday after a double-decker bus in Canada’s capital city crashed through a railway crossing into a moving train moments after passengers yelled at the bus driver to stop.
Five people died at the site of the crash, which occurred about 6.2 miles south of downtown at about 8:48 a.m., said Anthony Di Monte, chief of Ottawa’s paramedic service. A sixth died in the hospital and 34 people were injured, Di Monte said at a press conference, adding he didn’t know how many of the 10 seriously injured passengers remained in critical condition.
‘‘From what I can tell, the bus driver did not notice that these train track’s signal lights were on and the gates were down,’’ Greg Mech, a passenger on the upper level of the bus, said on CBC television. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
