Tour bus crash in Vancouver leaves two people with life-threatening injuries

Police say at least three people have been injured after they were struck by a tour bus in downtown Vancouver.

The incident happened just before 10a.m. Sunday on Burrard Street, near Canada Place.

Numerous reports say the bus packed with passengers parked by Canada Place started rolling and hit a family who were putting their bags into their auto. The extent of their injures is not yet known.

Firefighters and paramedics attended the scene. The third man stuck under the bus took much longer to rescue.

He said he saw fire rescue crews pull three people from under the bus.

"I heard the sound, the crash". "It was pretty sad".

Images from the scene in downtown Vancouver show a bus that appears to have hit a vehicle. The side of the bus said it was the free shuttle to the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
