Canada in mourning after 15 die in hockey team bus crash

Canada has been plunged into “shock and mourning” after 15 people died and more than a dozen were injured in a “nightmare” collision between a bus carrying a junior hockey team and a semi-trailer.

The royal Canadian mounted police said 29 people, including the driver, were on the Humboldt Broncos team bus when the crash occurred late on Friday afternoon on a rural highway some 200km north-east of Saskatoon in the province of Saskatchewan.

The team had been heading to a Saskatchewan junior hockey league playoff game against the Nipawin Hawks, officials said.
