Reports say the semi blew through the intersection and t-boned the bus.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

On Sportscentre, they stated the bus was heading northbound on Highway 35. The semi blew the stop heading westbound. Strikes me, given the timing, the semi would have been driving right into the sunset

A post on reddit says that the fan bus was following behind them so would have witnessed the accident. Just horrific all around.

I think the crash was around 4:45pm, so still a few hours prior to sunset.

All of them with bleached hair. Obviously some sort of team-building exercise. They must have been a tight group.

I know guys who play in the SJHL and AJHL. These guys are my age. This is the most horrifying thing I've heard in a long, long time. I just pray that this isn't as bad as I've heard reported.

Two hospitals in Saskatoon are asking people to avoid the Emergency Room tonight. Officials are asking people to go to City Hospital, which usually closes its ER by now, but is staying open.

Technical issues.

I'm listening to 650 CKOM online. Saskatoon's news radio.

No real update from RCMP. They aren't confirming numbers of fatalities or injuries at this point. Nor are they describing the causes of the crash in detail. "The investigation is ongoing". RCMP have dispatched "significant resources".

That is absolutely heartbreaking, makes you sick to your stomach to hear. Wishing the best for the community and families as they attempt to deal with the aftermath.

I finally found it. Why announce a news conference to say "essentially we know nothing?" Why not just wait to hold it when you can/will share information?

I'm not trying to be a nosey grief vampire, I just don't understand why the RCMP announced a news conference to say jack all. Silence says just as much as was given in the update.

Makes sense, actually. Pretty much every news outlet in Canada is inundating them with requests for info. Even if they say nothing now, setting up the conference still funnels everyone into a single path: There will be news conferences. So now the media waits until the RCMP announces its next update.

Because the internet is exploding with rumours. They need to get at least something official out.
