Multiple people are dead after a bus carrying a junior hockey team to a game in Saskatchewan collided with a transport truck on a rural highway, according to RCMP.
RCMP have confirmed “fatalities” and a number of injuries in the crash involving the Humboldt Broncos team bus. Officials have not confirmed the number of dead and injured.
The team is part of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, which is open to players 20 years or younger.

The crash occurred about 30 kilometres north of Tisdale, Sask. Traffic in the area is expected to be delayed for several hours, RCMP said.
Two air ambulance helicopters were dispatched to the scene, a spokesperson from STARS Ambulance told CTV News. The two aircraft flew in from Regina and Saskatoon.

The Nipawin Hawks were scheduled to play the team Friday night, but confirmed that the game has been cancelled due to the crash.

Thoughts and prayers!!
I know people on this bus, it’s not looking good.
Sorry to hear this.

Sounds like Patrick Sharp might be retiring too.

I wonder if the twins and him told each other of their retirement plans at the end of the Van Chi game?
Try to focus on THIS year... again

Luckily the young man I know Is in stable condition, but the loss of life from this accident is sickening, all from a blown stop sign by a truck driver.

It was said:

"The bus was T-boned by a transport truck, according to the president of the Nipawin Hawks, who were scheduled to play the Broncos Friday night."

But it almost looks like the bus t-boned the truck right in the middle.

Either way it appears one of em went through the stop sign.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

I fucking hate section roads.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

The truck t-boned the bus right near the front, basically demolishing the front end then flipping the bus on its side and pulling the roof right off.

My wife’s family knows some of the boys families, my stepdaughter knows one of the first responders that was on scene. Both communities are in complete shock.

I think the phrase “thoughts and prayers” is definitely overused but acknowledging support for these poor families isn’t a bad thing. For those interested there is a go fund me page set up for the families involved to help with expenses! Quick search and you’ll find it no problem.

Grew up in Humboldt and what you said matches what I’ve heard, the semi flew through the stop sign and due to a bluff being close to the intersection the bus driver had no time to react.

The Canucks donated $29,000 to the fund. I hope other nhl teams step up also.
