Truck driver charged in Canada hockey team crash with 16 dead

A truck driver in Canada who crashed into a bus and killed 16 people in April was charged Friday with 29 counts of unsafe operation of a vehicle causing death and bodily injury.

Sidhu is scheduled to appear in court in Saskatchewan next week, and will remain in custody until then.

The tractor trailer he was driving crashed into a bus carrying members of the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team, aged 16 to 21.

The bus was traveling north on Highway 35 to an SJHL playoff game and had the right of way when the collision occurred, the RCMP said.

Now that charges have been laid in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash, those in the community, like many, patiently await the outcome.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said investigators from its Major Crime Unit arrested Sidhu from his home in Calgary in the western province of Alberta. If the case goes to trial, he said someone from the Boulet family will be in court.

Thomas said the police investigation and the possibility of charges being laid have not been a constant presence in his mind.

A collision reenactment took place in April, and RCMP conducted more than 60 interviews, took more than 6,000 photographs and analyzed all available documentation, including the driver log book, Wiliams said.

"That's exactly what it is, and I won't say closure because that's not even close", she told CTV News.

Ten players died in the crash.

Saskatchewan RCMP has announced that an arrest has been made in connection to the Humboldt bus crash, that killed 16 people.

Not much is known about the driver, other than he was driving for Adesh Deol Trucking the time of the crash.
