Multiple injuries in bus crash south of Ottawa on Hwy 401

OPP officers work at the site of a crash involving a tour bus on Highway 401 West, near Prescott, Ont., on June 4, 2018.

OPP said the tour bus was carrying 37 tourists at the time, all from China.

All passengers on the bus were Chinese citizens, according to the Chinese embassy in Ottawa.

Four more victims are still in grave condition in area hospitals after the bus collided with a rock cut along a stretch of the westbound lanes of the highway.

Aiden Liang, the owner of the Union Tour Express bus company, said the bus left from Ottawa on Monday and was bound for Toronto.

"It definitely looked very surreal and chaotic", said the man, who would only give his name as Robert. "The passengers' side of the bus got quite heavily damaged, thus all the injuries".

Paramedics from municipalities across eastern Ontario are at the site of the bus crash, which occurred near Blue Church Road.
