A bus carrying gamers and employees with the Miramichi Timberwolves hockey staff was concerned in a deadly collision Sunday afternoon.
In an announcement, the Maritime Junior Hockey League (MHL) confirmed the collision occurred in Astle, N.B., whereas the staff was on its option to a sport in Fredericton.
RCMP Sgt. Andrew Griffiths informed World Information that the collision between a car and the bus occurred round 11:30 a.m. on Hwy 8.
“The motive force of the motorcar sadly succumbed to their accidents on scene,” he mentioned.
“The investigation is ongoing and … the street will likely be closed for a short time but.”
The staff had posted on social media earlier within the day that the street sport in Fredericton was postponed after an accident involving the bus, however that “everyone on the bus is okay.”
“These on the bus sustained restricted accidents and grief counsellors have been introduced in. Additional counselling and assist will likely be provided, as requested,” the MHL assertion reads.
“The Maritime Junior Hockey League (MHL) provides its condolences to the household of the sufferer of Sunday’s accident.”
