14 dead 15 injured in crash of hockey team bus outside of Tisdale Sask.

What a horrible story to wake up to.

https://ca.gofundme.com/funds-for-humboldt-broncos here is the go fund me page to help these people out.

Not a hockey fan but I am a parent and my kids do play sports and the last thing you think about when your kid leaves to take a trip somewhere to play is something like this.

Heart breaking.

This broke my heart. The prairie heartland, hockey, salt of earth.. and the immense open landscape that must be traversed by bus or train. My sincere condolences to families and communities affected.

It's now over a million $$$


T-boned by an 18 wheeler.

Jesus wept, 29 people on the bus, 14 dead, 15 injured. He got them all.

Totally flat area. The bus was headed north on 35, the trucker must have been on 335.

Drunk, or fell asleep ?

What the hell is wrong with people? How can a professional driver cause something like this?

I was just grasping at straws after the deadly facts.anyway. I am always worried about school buses.

There's no proof the bus was t-boned-in fact this looks to me like a head on collision which is what survivors have said it was.

It was a head on and to my understanding it's still being investigated.

Very tragic. My heart goes out to the family.

15 now confirmed dead as a result of the crash.





This view looks much more like a head-on to me rather than a T-bone. The bus has been peeled open like an onion. It is amazing that anyone survived. Judging by the damage to both vehicles, it must have been one horrific crash.

terrible tragedy

folks here in Gopherland were talking a lot about that as we also have teams that travel a long way to get to their games- they often travel in snow storms where direction signs may be obscured by ice/snow and use train crossings that are not gated

Weather was not a factor in this crash.

News says different.

RCMP say multiple factors under consideration in Broncos' team bus crash | CBC News

The driver and sole occupant of a semi-trailer was heading west on Highway 335, while the Humboldt Broncos team bus carrying 29 people was northbound on Highway 35.

Looks like the truck driver may have blown the stop sign, and the bus hit the trailer.

They wouldn't have made much difference in this case. Maybe one life at most!

The first news report I heard called it a head on.

But as the article states, it's still under investigation.

If they is any upside to a tragedy like this it makes the rest of us realize how lucky we really are and our niggling little problems are really nothing. How many people today would give their eye teeth to be able to trade their problems for mine? Condolences to all affected!
