At least 14 dead when Canadian Jr hockey team's bus crashes; pic shows players in hospital holding hands


This is horrific!
Fox News reports a western Canadian town of about 6,000 people was devastated Friday after learning that a bus carrying the town's junior hockey team had collided with a semi-truck while traveling to a playoff game, resulting in at least 14 deaths.

Others on the bus were injured, three of them critically, the Saskatoon Star Phoenix reported.

Most of those killed were likely the hockey players, who were between 16 and 21 years old -- though the Royal Canadian Mounted Police would not specify how many of the fatalities were players.

A picture posted on social media showed three of the injured players holding hands while lying in hospital beds.
