Canadian police: Fatalities after bus crash involving junior hockey league team

Recommended Posts

Heartfelt thoughts go out to the families, although not comforting I'm sure.

Sounds like either the truck driver was on the road too long and sleepy, or texting while approaching the intersection, or the intersection is poorly designed with the trees limiting visibility?

The truck driver involved in the accident just received an eight-year prison sentence, the longest in Canadian history for a vehicular accident that didn't involve alcohol.

Truck driver in fatal Humboldt crash gets 8 years

this is a terrible miscarriage of justice. when i first heard about the sentence, i heard that it was 8 years per death, and that seemed reasonable. but 8 years total for killing 16 people? that's not justice.

I'm not familiar enough with the Canadian criminal justice system to know what their options were.
