Multiple fatalities after truck collides with Canadian junior hockey team bus

Garinger, who has one of the players living in his home, said they still do not know his fate.

The bus was carrying 28 people, including the driver. It was initially reported that 14 had died, however this has now risen to 15.

Details on how many people are dead or injured have not been released.

The team had been traveling to a playoff game when the accident occurred at about 5 p.m. on Friday near the Tisdale area, around 185 miles (300 km) north of Regina.

"It's a disgusting accident, my God", he said.

"It's too early to comment on the cause of the collision and we will continue to provide updates", Zablocki said, according to Colette Derworiz of the Canadian Press.

The team, the Humboldt Broncos, was en route to Nipawin, about 265 kilometres northeast of Saskatoon, to play a game against the Nipawin Hawks.

Darren Opp, president of the opposing Nipawin Hawks hockey team, said: "It's a terrible accident, my God".

Syrian Military Bases Attacked — Reports
Trump's tweet about Putin apparently marks the first time the President has publicly attacked the Russian leader by name. Another such hoax about the chemical attack that supposedly took place in Douma emerged yesterday", the statement said.


It's a disaster that resonates with so many Canadians, from the parent who drives her child to the rink on a snowy morning, to the National Hockey League player who fondly remembers his amateur days on the bus with his teammates, all of them thinking about the next game, but also dreaming of the next level as the kilometres roll by.

Much of the hockey world issued messages of condolences, including National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman.

Thomas said often the time spent on the bus as a team is very enjoyable, and a big part of the experience.

"And it's always a thought in parents' and fans' minds about what could happen, and unfortunately it has happened in Humboldt".

A player on the 2017-2018 season of a Canadian team involved in a deadly bus crash grew up playing on a hockey team in Colorado. Players for the Broncos range in age from 16 to 21, according to the team's roster.

Colorado Avalanche coach Jared Bednar grew up in Humboldt. Most of the others list their hometowns as being in the province of Alberta.

Rob Muench, mayor of the 6,000-population city of Humboldt where the team are based, said it will take years for the community to come to grips with the tragedy.

"'Broncos' is meant to symbolize the unity and support of our hockey communities coming together as one for the Humboldt Broncos' family", the Jets said in a statement.

Torres to leave Atletico Madrid in search of game time
Niguez nearly gave Atletico the lead in the 71st minute only to see his strike go just wide of the target. It was Madrid who eventually went 1-0 up thanks to star man Ronaldo who struck in the 53rd minute.


The home of the team at the Elger Petersen Arena in the eastern Saskatchewan town had flowers placed on the stairs in the rink stands Saturday morning, the railings are wrapped in yellow and green ribbon to honour the team. "We're a really small community, and all of us here in Humboldt are definitely somehow connected to the team". I go to every junior game I can, glad to pay from 5$ to 20$ for a ticket or tournament entry.

Expressions of sympathy poured in from around the globe.

"We talked to him, but he said he couldn't feel his lower extremities, so I don't know what's going on", Straschnitzki told the AP. The Associated Press reported that a radio announcer for the team had also died in the crash.

In a tweet, Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada, said he could not imagine what the parents of the players were going through.

President Trump tweeted Saturday that he spoke with Trudeau to "pay my highest respect and condolences to the families of the bad Humboldt Team tragedy". "May God be with them all!"

This is not the first time a Saskatchewan hockey team has felt the devastation of a crash, in 1986, four members of the Swift Current Broncos were killed in a bus crash.

The flat prairie around the crash site is covered with snow, traces of which can be seen on the plowed roads. "And they came back", he said. "We will be working with our partner agencies to ensure families are notified as soon as possible and the appropriate supports are provided to families and others who are impacted by this extremely tragic incident".

"He went to surgery last night in Saskatoon, and hopefully he's doing better", Bednar said from Denver.
