Emergency crews extricated one man from his vehicle and transported him to hospital after a collision in Ottawa’s east end Tuesday morning.
Ottawa Fire Services said they were on site at the intersection of Vanier Parkway and Queen Mary Street to remove a man trapped in his vehicle just before 10:30 a.m.
Paramedics arriving shortly after said they treated and stabilized a man in his 20s. He was later transferred to hospital in critical condition, according to the paramedics’ update on Twitter.
Eight other occupants of a shuttle bus involved in the collision were also assessed on site but denied offers for further care in hospital.
Vanier Parkway remained close to traffic between Donald Street and Coventry Road just after noon on Tuesday.
