Canada police say 14 dead after hockey bus crash

A crash between a transport truck and a bus carrying a junior hockey team in western Canada has left 14 people dead and others seriously injured, Canadian police said. "There is no playbook on what to do in cases like this".

Police said early Saturday another 14 were injured, three of them critically.

"We are not confirming the identity of the victims at this time, including whether the deceased are players or coaches", Nipawin RCMP said in a statement. Twenty-nine people were on the bus.

Speaking at the news conference, RCMP Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki said the wreck occurred around 5 p.m. Friday when the tractor-trailer, traveling west on Highway 335, collided with the bus traveling north on Highway 35.

The driver of the tractor-trailer, who was not identified, was initially detained but has since been released, according to the authorities. He was detained initially but is not now in custody and his case is not now being investigated as a criminal investigation.

The cause of the accident was still under investigation.

The team was heading to Nipawin for a playoff game at the time of the crash.

Rob Eichorst, the team's governor, said Sunday's interdenominational vigil was organized by local religious leaders "for healing of the community, the hockey team, the province, the country".

"I can not imagine what these parents are going through", he wrote.

"We talked to him, but he said he couldn't feel his lower extremities so I don't know what's going on", she said, noting she will go to Saskatchewan on Saturday.

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

"This isn't about Humboldt, it's not even about Saskatchewan; it's about Canada and our world."

Hunter's death was confirmed by his former team, the St. Albert Raiders in his Alberta hometown.

"Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the families of our staff and athletes as well as to all who have been impacted by this awful tragedy".

In Humboldt, people showed up at the Elgar Petersen Arena to offer support, according to CNN partner CBC. We're a small community; some of those kids have been on the team for a number of years. You come to the rink ... what's better than that?

"I just felt like I had to go donate".

Expressions of sympathy poured in from around the globe.

"We don't know who has passed and we don't expect to know right away", he said.

President Donald Trump also tweeted his condolences.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is scheduled to attend "to pay his respects and mourn the loss of the players and officials of the Humboldt Broncos".

"To the City of Humboldt, the entire Broncos organization, and the families impacted by this tragedy, please know you are in Saskatchewan's hearts", Moe said in a Facebook statement. "May God be with them all!"

Don Cherry spoke briefly about the crash on his Coach's Corner segment before introducing a montage of photos of every member of the Broncos team.

The assistant coach was from Strasbourgh, Sask., where he was named most valuable player previous year while playing with the Maroons in the Highway Hockey League. A memorial to those players was erected at the crash site in 2016.

"That was Darcy's belief and through that they would ultimately become great hockey players too".

Twenty-one-year-old Logan Boulet was reported to have been taken off life support yesterday - his family say his organs were donated. "We try to support them the same way we try to support the other families". "April 6, 2018 is going to be a dark day in Saskatchewan for a long time", Janex said. "We've been through so much together".
