Personal Injury Lawyers Ottawa Ontario: David Hollingsworth
It’s that time of year , when the malls are busy and many people are preoccupied with getting ready for the holidays. It’s also a time of year when many accidents occur. Drivers and pedestrians are distracted with other things and unfortunately this can lead to accidents. It is still unknown what caused the accident but last week an OC Transpo bus accident at Bayshore Shopping Centre resulted in the death of a 74-year-old woman. She had been crossing a cross-walk last Tuesday when the OC Transpo bus hit her. Sadly she was rushed to an Ottawa hospital but did not make it and was pronounced dead on Thursday.
Police say they don’t yet know all of the circumstances of the incident and they’re looking for more information before they can find blame in the collision and they’re asking any witnesses to come forward. Bayshore Shopping Centre is currently under construction. There are certain areas under construction that have a lot of traffic and this, sadly was one of the areas where this fatal accident occurred.
If you have any information that could help Ottawa Police determine exactly what happened, please contact them at (613) 236-1222. My thoughts go out to this woman’s family and friends, as well as others involved in the accident. I also urge everyone to be extra cautious at this very busy time of year. Whether you are in a car, on a bus, or walking, please be careful. Have a safe day !
