One pedestrian died and another was seriously injured after being struck by a car in the area surrounding the Champlain Bridge and Island Park Drive.
On Wednesday evening, the Champlain Bridge remained closed in both directions during the RCMP investigation. The age and sex of the two victims have not been released.
According to Ottawa police, the call arrived around 7 p.m. and the Ottawa police and RCMP were initially investigating.
The RCMP will likely resume the investigation because the Sir John A Macdonald Bridge and Drive are federal responsibilities.
