Trump sends condolences for Canada bus crash

Humboldt Broncos bus semi involved in serious collision multiple deaths

Canadian police say the crash happened at about 5 p.m. Friday on Highway 35 in Saskatchewan when a semi T-boned the bus carrying the hockey team.

A horrific bus crash involving a Sakatchewan junior hockey team, the Humboldt Broncos, killed 14 people Friday, including its head coach and captain.

In their first press conference following the crash, RCMP confirmed the highway at the time of the crash was experiencing "winter driving conditions", but they couldn't say if the weather was a factor, adding it's still early in the investigation.

The Broncos play in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, an under-20 youth league that regularly produces NHL players. It collided with a transport truck. "Some of them are waiting to hear if their kids are alive".

An online fundraising page set up by a woman listed on social media as a Humboldt resident raised almost CAN$40,000 (US$31,000) in a matter of hours. Opp said the coaching staff and players from the Hawks are waiting to help.

"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", Trudeau tweeted.

Kellington said her son was on the Broncos Bantam A team this past season.

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

An online fundraising campaign set up for family members of the team had raised more than $260,000 Saturday morning.

"We just need to try to support each other as we deal with this incredible loss to our community, to our province, to our hockey world".

According to reports, UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa suffered injuries related to the McGregor attack and is now in hospital. The moniker stuck and McGregor even poked fun at it in a recent commercial for Burger King's newest chicken sandwich.

His team's bus had hit a patch of ice and crashed while the hockey team was en route to Regina.

"We are extremely saddened to hear that former Eagle Jaxon Joseph has passed away in the Humboldt Broncos bus accident", reads a statement tweeted from his former team the Surrey Eagles' official account Saturday morning. "We know that the coroner and their office needs to do their work and let families know".

Stephenson tuned into a Canadian radio station to listen to Humboldt's mayor address the community of 5,869 Friday night, where citizens were invited to the rink and to church to grieve together.

Kevin Henry, a coach who runs a hockey school in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, said people there are in shock. "I grew up right there in Saskatoon, it's just down the road".

"Laureen and I are deeply saddened to hear of the tragic accident that took place in Saskatchewan".

The STARS Air Ambulance service said two of its helicopters flew to the scene. A 1986 crash outside of Swift Current killed four junior hockey players.

The Swift Current Broncos also shared their condolences.

President Donald Trump said Saturday he spoke with Trudeau to "pay my highest respect and condolences to the families of the bad Humboldt Team tragedy".

"He will always be a great man in our hearts", his sister posted on Twitter under the name Debbie Jayne. Earlier Friday, Moe thanked first responders and medical professionals for their "courageous response under the most hard circumstances imaginable".

Jaxon Joseph, son of former National Hockey League defenseman Chris Joseph, is also among the dead, according to Sportsnet Canada. The league is open to players between the ages of 16 and 20.
