The Broncos' team bus collided with a transport truck while on the way to a playoff game in Nipawin, Saskatchewan.

The driver of the transport truck was taken into custody but later released. The driver was not injured in the crash.

A GoFundMe page for the team has raised more than $16 million for the crash victims' families. Nathan Oystrick has been named the new head coach of the Broncos, replacing the late Darcy Haugan, who died in the crash.
