14 dead in junior hockey team bus crash in Canada

A bus carrying a group of Canadian junior hockey players has collided with a semi-trailer on a rural highway in Saskatchewan, killing 14 people, Canadian media reported citing police.

At least 15 people were killed and 14 others injured when the bus, transporting the Humboldt Broncos, crashed late on Friday.

Commissioner Curtis Zablocki said the driver of the semi was not hurt and was briefly detained after the crash early Friday evening.

The Broncos team bus was carrying 29 people, including players and coaches, to a playoff game in Nipawin.

The crash happened on Highway 35 in Saskatchewan around 5 p.m. on Friday.

Police are not identifying the victims and have not said if the deceased were players or staff.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote that he "cannot imagine what these parents are 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".

The hockey community took to social media Saturday morning as the true horror of the bus accident involving the Humboldt Broncos began to emerge.

The Hawks' president, Darren Opp, told the Globe and Mail newspaper that the truck T-boned the players' bus.

A church which had been a place for families to gather while they awaited news of their loved ones was deserted, as was Centennial Arena, home of the Hawks.

"It's a terrible accident, my God". "It's very, very bad".

The crash killed Broncos head coach Darcy Haugan, team captain Logan Schatz and the team's play-by-play radio announcer Tyler Bieber.


That's because many junior hockey teams in the country rely on a process called billeting - where local families take in determined young hockey players from across Canada and the United States.

Judy Wilkie has lived through that nightmare of just waiting for news, as her son, Bob, was involved in the Swift Current Broncos bus crash 31 years ago that killed four players.

One parent posted pictures of three of the team members in hospital.

Masri said it was emotional given Saskatchewan communities are knit together by hockey.

"We just opened our building here with food and drinks ... they can come if they need somewhere to go or someone to talk to", he said.

Bishop Hagemoen praised the community for "rallying around family members and friends, and holding people in prayer and support".

Kevin Henry, a coach who runs a hockey school in Prince Albert, said people are in shock.

She described the experience of moving far away from home as a defining and sometimes hard one for both the players involved and the families who host them.

STARS air ambulance said it sent three helicopters to the scene. We knew he was alive because his billet was an RCMP officer who was one of the first on the scene and his wife went right to the hospital to be with Bob.

Kelly Schatz, Logan's father, says his 20-year-old son played for the Broncos for just over four years and had served as team captain for the past two-and-a-half years.

The Western Hockey League Swift Current Broncos expressed their condolences.

The Winnipeg Jets and Chicago Blackhawks announced that both teams will wear the name "BRONCOS" instead of their nameplates on Saturday night when they play at MTS Centre.

"I think one thing that we underestimate with the impact of trauma, and PTSD, and going through things like this, is the magnitude of the impact", he says.
