Driver of truck charged in connection to Humboldt Broncos crash

An arrest has been made and charges laid in connection with the Humboldt Broncos bus crash

He was identified as Jaskirat Singh Sidhu, said Rob King, public information officer for the Saskatchewan RCMP.

Each of the 16 counts of risky driving causing death carries a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison.

"From our understanding... this is the highest level of criminal charges that can be laid against the individual".

"I'm happy they took their time and did it right", said Tyler Cameron of Olds, Alta., adding that he feels the charges were "appropriate".

"Maybe it's part of the grieving process that we're going through. In order to lay these charges we required evidence of a motor vehicle being operated in a manner that is unsafe to the public", RCMP said in a statement.

France say Thierry Henry in ‘wrong camp’ for World Cup semi
It's a World Cup semi-final that has all the ingredients of becoming one of the most memorable clashes in history. One favorite will advance to the 2018 World Cup final, while the other will see their dreams come to an end.

RCMP officials met with families Friday morning in Saskatoon, Edmonton and via video stream, Williams said, to inform family members of the investigation's outcome. If the case goes to trial, he said someone from the Boulet family will be in court. "It's not something you can just push through", he said. "They'll never be fully healed".

Sidhu was working for the Calgary-based Adesh Deol Trucking Ltd. when the crash occurred at a rural intersection. The truck company owner added the only other truck in his fleet was ordered to stay off the road by Alberta Transportation.

"Whatever happened, happened for a reason", former Humboldt player and crash survivor Ryan Straschnitzki told the CBC.

"I think that's what people want to know". "It's good to see that something has come of the investigation". The team recently named Nathan Oystrick as the new coach and general manager, filling the vacancy of Darcy Haugan, who was killed in the crash.

Earlier this week, the Broncos announced Nathan Oystrick would be their new head coach.
