"The only thing we know is there are injuries", said Acting Sergeant Tina Hunt of the Ontario Provincial Police.

OPP officers work at the site of a crash involving a tour bus on Highway 401 West, near Prescott, Ont. on Monday, June 4, 2018.

The tour bus was carrying a driver, a guide and 35 tourists from China.

Twenty-four people have been sent to hospital including at least four in critical condition after a tour bus crashed on Highway 401 near Prescott, Ont.

A spokesman of the Chinese Embassy said that the embassy is in contact with the relevant Canadian authorities to verify the situation.

This is a developing story that will be updated as more information is revealed.

No team in National Basketball Association history has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit to win any best-of-seven series. LeBron James kept Cleveland close despite Golden State's torrid shooting with 10 points, five assists and four rebounds.

Four more victims are still in grave condition in area hospitals after the bus collided with a rock cut along a stretch of the westbound lanes of the highway. "The passengers' side of the bus got quite heavily damaged, thus all the injuries".

The Ornge air ambulance service has said it is responding to the scene, which is about 95 kilometres south of Ottawa.

Spokeswoman Abby McIntyre told The Canadian Press that all the patients the hospital had received were "Mandarin speaking".

The OPP says the bus crashed into a ditch.

"Then news came that these patients only spoke Mandarin, so we put the call out to see if anyone in the hospital could help translate, and several physicians and nursing staff showed up", he said.
