RCMP say people have died and others have been seriously injured in a crash between a transport truck and a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos junior CP NewsAlert: Radio announcer for Humboldt Broncos among 14 dead after bus crash

A vigil is scheduled for tonight in Humboldt. The crash took place at around 5:00 pm on Highway 35 about 28 kilometers north of the town of Tisdale, a trading center in an overwhelmingly agricultural region of the western province.

It was to be Game 5 of the semifinal series of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League playoffs.

The death toll was initially reported as 14, but on Saturday afternoon the RCMP announced a 15th death.

The identities of the dead have not yet been released by officials.

Haugan's wife, Christina George-Haugan, confirmed the coach's death to The Canadian Press.

Jacob Leicht was a left-winger for his hometown Broncos. "I'll always remember you and who you were will influence me for the rest of my life".

Darcy Haugan was the head coach of the Broncos.

"He was a wonderful young man". That number includes players, coaching staff and the driver.

Tyler Bieber was the play-by-play announcer for Humboldt's CHBO 107.5 Bolt FM. He also covered morning news. Thirteen of the 24 players listed on the roster come from Saskatchewan, with two from Humboldt.

"It's hard", Schatz said. "Some of the families have gotten information and have gone to be with their kids". He was 20 years old.

"Mark was one of those people that just made you feel safe and brought a special spark when you were in his presence".

Hassan Masri, an emergency room doctor at Saskatoon's Royal University Hospital, said a code orange emergency was called signalling massive casualties.


The night of the crash marked a double tragedy for the family.

Montreal defenceman Brett Lernout spent 2 1/2 seasons with the WHL's Swift Current Broncos, a team that was touched by tragedy when four players were killed in a bus crash in 1986. "Tragedy has hit our community and it reaches into every corner of life in Humboldt". "He will truly be missed". Another team he drove for, the Kinistino Tigers, also issued a statement.

"Our trips to Foam Lake and Allan were on frightful highways due to winter storms", the Tigers wrote.

"I think that's who we are as people from Saskatchewan", he said.

Many wore jerseys and sweatshirts with the green Broncos logo.

Born in Saskatoon, he played for the Contacts in the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League before he joined the Broncos of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. Tributes poured in online for the father of two young sons, who was described as an incredible mentor to players. In a Twitter post, Lethbridge West MLA Shannon Phillips shared her condolences.

"Now I don't know what goes on now". "To the entire Humboldt community: We are here for you".

It was the 18-year-old's first season as a forward with the Humboldt Broncos. Prior to that, he played for the St. Albert Raiders in Midget AAA.

"One of the best hockey players and an even greater guy off the ice", Tyson Chizma wrote on Twitter. Hockey's everything in Canada, but in Saskatchewan every community's fairly small, so everybody knows everybody and you try and look out for each other and take care of each other. "Some of them get homesick for a while, especially if they're young at 17 or 18 years of age, but most of the time they fit in to your families and just become part of you".

Lukan played with the midget St. Albert Raiders and Spruce Grove Saints in the Alberta Junior Hockey League before joining the Broncos previous year. Saints General Manager Rob Sklaruk shared his sympathies in an official statement.

"It's a terrible accident, my God", he said.
