On 6 April 2018, 16 members of the Humboldt Broncos, a Saskatchewan junior hockey team, died when their team bus was struck on the side by a transport truck while crossing an intersection. The collision was among the most fatal motor vehicle disasters in Canadian history.
The dead in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash included the driver of the bus, 10 players, as well as coaches and other team assistants. Thirteen others on the bus, plus the driver of the transport truck, survived. The rural intersection near Tisdale, Saskatchewan had been the scene of a collision in 1997 that killed six members of a family.
