Canada hockey team bus crash kills 14

Sergio Cook | 08 April, 2018, 02:49

"Humboldt Broncos weighing heavy in our hearts and minds tonight", the team said on Twitter.

"There is no playbook on what to do in cases like this".

The bus driving the Humboldt Broncos had 29 passengers, including the driver, when it crashed at about 5 p.m. Friday on Highway 35 in Saskatchewan, Canadian police said.

Garinger said all the team can do now is help the players and their families any way they can.

At least 14 people were killed and three people were critically injured.

Around 5 p.m. Friday, the truck was heading west at a highway intersection south of Nipawin when it collided with the bus.

"The driver has subsequently been released".

"It's a awful accident, my God", Opp said.

"While en route to Nipawin, the Broncos bus was involved in a awful accident which has resulted in multiple fatalities and serious injuries", a team statement read.

Details about the collision between a bus carrying a junior ice hockey team and a lorry have been slow to trickle out in the wake of the tragedy. It kind of hits home because I think everyone has been on these buses. "We grieve with those facing news no parent or family should ever have to face". "My second thought right away was, 'Wow, we're on the bus a lot'".

Ruschkowski said he was close with head coach Darcy Haugan and he will be missed in the hockey community.

The Manitoba Junior Hockey League posted a message of condolence on its web site Saturday as did the Winnipeg Jets, who announced that a moment of silence would be held prior to Saturday's NHL game between the Jets and the Chicago Blackhawks at Bell MTS Place. Players for the Broncos range in age from 16 to 21, according to the team's roster. Most of the others list their hometowns as being in the province of Alberta.

"This is much bigger than anyone can begin to imagine", Broncos team president Kevin Garinger told the Canadian broadcaster CBC.

"We were a family", a former Broncos player, Daigon Elny, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Family members gathered at the Nipawin Apostolic Church. You come to the rink ... what's better than that? He is one of the most adventurous, ambitious, and loving people that I have ever been blessed to know.

The RCMP said 15 people have been killed, and 28 on board the bus, adding it is not confirming any victims' identities yet, to "ensure families are notified as soon as possible and the appropriate supports are provided".

Expressions of sympathy poured in from around the globe.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several pro sports teams shared condolences on Twitter.

"I can not imagine what these parents are going through, and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this bad tragedy, in the Humboldt community and beyond", Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote on Twitter late Friday. "My heart goes out to everyone affected by this awful tragedy". "It's hard to describe and a lot of people are saying it that way and the reason they are doing that because it's nearly impossible to describe".
