TORONTO — The Ottawa city bus involved in a horrific crash with a Via passenger train Wednesday that left six people dead has been towed away from the scene. The investigators will be looking at data obtained from recorders on both vehicles for clues as to what caused the crash. They'll also be analyzing other physical evidence gathered at the scene, as well as going over witness accounts.
