    Fifteen people are dead and 14 are in hospital after a bus carrying a junior hockey team to a playoff game in Saskatchewan collided with a transport truck on a rural highway, according to RCMP.
    The crash involving the Humboldt Broncos team bus occurred on Highway 35 near Gronlid, more than 200 kilometres northeast of Saskatoon, late Friday afternoon.


    The bus was T-boned by a transport truck, according to the president of the Nipawin Hawks, which was scheduled to play the Broncos in Game 5 of a semi-final Friday night. There were 29 people, including the driver, on board the bus at the time of the collision, RCMP said in a release.

    Police said three of the people transported to hospital have injuries that are "critical in nature."

    The team is part of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, which is open to players 20 years or younger. Thirteen of the Humboldt Broncos players are from Saskatchewan, 10 are from Alberta, and one is from Manitoba.

    The Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team poses for a photo March 24, 2018, after winning the Bourgault Cup.

    From an ICU doctor in Saskatoon

    Hassan McMasri

    6 hrs ∑


    Last night can only be described as the longest, worst and most tragic night of my career. The images canít be unseen or forgotten, the stories canít be unheard or ignored. Meeting each family and explaining the extent of each injury was nothing short of a painful exercise of cruelty. Families waiting for hours to identify their loved ones and smiling of joy at the idea of a significant injury as long as it meant that their loved one was alive brought chills to my spine.
    I want to thank you few people and I know I will forget some. The performance during this code orange was nothing but phenomenal.
    1- first and foremost: the nurses in the emergency department and in the ICU. Your tears made it easier for my tears to flow. Your passion, care and love is so admirable. I thank you for being the amazing humans that you are. You saved many lives and comforted 100s of other lives.


    2- The physicians who came in from everywhere to help. Anesthesiologist, General surgeons, emergency department physicians, neurosurgeons, radiologists. You all put eveything aside including your own families and came and put your head down and got to work. You called in and insisted that we call you if we can use you.
    3- The respiratory therapists who are often overlooked were the silent heroes as always.
    4- the hospital organization and the Saskatchewan Health Authority for making sure that this horrible national tragedy was less painful than what it is already.
    5- To the talented residents that stepped up to the challenge and helped beyond what is expected of them.
    6- To the social workers who will be hurting silently today after hearing all those tragic stories.
    7- Finally to my colleagues Bruce Cload and Jo Kawchuk for their support and help.
    May this be my first and final Code Orange. Never want to see what I saw again.
    What an honour to know that you all have helped save a large number of lives.
    Thank you everyone and May those painful hours be followed by many hours and days of healing.
    What a sad and horrible night.

    A correction was made, that there were 29 on the bus, rather than the initially reported 28.

    @Natalka thank you for creating this thread. I am a mess viewing the losses here so far. Babcock was right, it just rips your heart out to think of the families now.
