    Devastating to the province and country. Hearing 14 dead, 14 injured. Can’t imagine what the community is going through.

        Just found out this morning that a friend of mine was on that bus. Someone who was out at every Grey Cup every year, and is now gone. My heart breaks for his family - go hug your loved ones everyone. I know I am.

          I’m sick to my stomach every time I pull up any news about this story. Incomprehensible tragedy, and sadness.

          Condolences for your friend, Mike. Very sorry to hear about your friend.

            Sickness and anger. The semi blew a stop sign with flashing lights.

              Has that been confirmed? I heard it too but I also heard that was speculation.

              Either way, just a terrible tragedy, no matter who is at fault.

                I haven't heard anything. Looking at pictures makes it look that way, but I'm not an expert at crash analysis. At this point, blaming doesn't help anyways. I can't imagine the remorse the driver would feel if this turns out to be the case.

                  We know for sure that the bus carrying the Broncos was headed north on 35. The intersection with 335 has stop signs and flashers. I think we can all do the math. The guy blew the stop sign at top speed.

                    Not sure about the top speed thing, but the principle is correct.

                        Seems that one of those who died was Tyler Bieber, the commentator for the game. He was a big CFL fan, did some CFL stuff in his journalism, and posted as Captain_Yzerman on the old RF site.

                        Rest in peace to all 16 who died. Today, I'll be thinking of Tyler.
                        Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

                          Tyler’s funeral is today. Still doesn’t quite seem real. Many here may have interacted with him on Twitter as @CFLDaily or on his site CFLDaily.ca. Our own Rids has him as one of his scouts as well. Touches everyone today.
