The RCMP corrected numbers early Saturday.

A horror crash between a truck and bus carrying Humbolt Broncos team's members and entourage has claimed the lives of 14 people. Officials had not yet released the victims' names or ages, NPR reported.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Saskatchewan report that the crash occurred at roughly 5 p.m. local time on Highway 35.

The Humboldt Broncos, who play in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, were travelling to a game against the Nipawin Hawks.

"This is a dark moment for our city, our community, our province", Humboldt Mayor Rob Muench said Saturday afternoon at a news conference.

Many people wandered in and out of the arena during the day.

"The worst part of the night was sitting with and watching parents cry as they waited to find out if their son was alive or not", he said.

He says he was shocked to hear about the crash that still "doesn't even seem real".

"Fatalities have been confirmed, and we have a number of injuries".

"It's going to affect the community big time", Lauer said.

"Those guys were very entertaining to watch".

"We had a group chat going with the rest of the former teammates to say 'we can get through this together".

"We were a family", a former Broncos player, Daigon Elny, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

The tragedy brought to mind an accident in 1986, when the Swift Current Broncos team bus slid off an icy highway and crashed in late December, killing four players.


The victims were dispatched by helicopter and ambulance to care centres in nearby Saskatoon.

"I know it well", Lauer said.

Darren Opp, president of the Hawks, said the semi T-boned the Humboldt players' bus.

"I'm nearly a little more shook up about this accident than I was with our bus accident past year", Bechard said.

Opp said the coaching staff and players from the Hawks were waiting to help.

Pastor Jordan Gadsby at the Apostolic Church in Nipawin said more than 100 people had gathered at the church.

"And they came back", he said. "Some of the families have gotten information and have gone to be with their kids". "I've got four other kids and they're here, which is nice".

It is not yet known who has died. "I just can't wrap my head around it".

He also stopped by the church where families were gathering.

"Our hearts ... the hockey world's an unbelievable world".

"I hardly have words to describe how I feel", said MJHL Commissioner Kim Davis on Saturday.

From a grieving province, thank you to every one of the first responders and medical professionals for your courageous response under the most hard circumstances imaginable. "We grieve with those facing news no parent or family should ever have to face".

A GoFundMe page, set up to support the families and players, raised over C$100,000 ($78,100: £55,680) in 11 hours. The crash happened at about 5 p.m. Friday.

"I am horrified to say that he did not make it", she said in a Facebook post. I can't explain what the Broncos mean to Humboldt.
