Humboldt Broncos Bus Crash Arrest, Charges Laid: Saskatchewan RCMP

Charges against truck driver Jaskirat Sidhu, 29, break down to 16 of risky operation of a motor vehicle causing death, and 13 of unsafe operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm.

According to Williams, the maximum sentence for risky driving causing death is 14 years, while the maximum for unsafe driving causing injury is 10 years. His first court appearance in Saskatchewan Provincial Court is next week.

RCMP said they conducted 60 interviews and took thousands of photos in evidence collection throughout the investigation.

Police in Saskatchewan have made an arrest in relation to the April 6 crash involving the Humboldt Broncos hockey team bus.

A semi-trailer driver is facing charges months after he collided with a bus carrying a Canadian youth hockey team in a crash that left 16 people dead, police said. Sixteen people died and 13 others were injured. The driver of the truck was not hurt, authorities said.

Counter-terrorism police took over the investigation on Wednesday after the exposure to Novichok was confirmed . The police are working hard and doing their best, it's the least we can do.

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

"We've also used 3-D technology to capture evidence through unmanned aerial vehicles". Sometimes, Criminal Code charges like unsafe driving, criminal negligence or impaired driving causing death might result. A number of players who survived the crash are still recovering from significant injuries.

Sidhu was working for the Calgary-based Adesh Deol Trucking Ltd. when the crash occurred at a rural intersection.

"It's finally come to charges being laid, so we are very happy about that because we don't want that to be ignored at all", Straschnitzki told The Canadian Press.

"Our organization has faith in the justice system and we will be watching closely as this court process plays out", the Broncos said in a statement Friday.
