Bus carrying seniors to casino smashes with semi-trailer truck in Canada, dead 15, injured 10.

In a rural area of the Canadian province of Manitoba, a bus bringing seniors to a casino crashed with a semi-trailer truck on Thursday, killing 15 people and wounding another 10, according to authorities. The accident happened at Carberry, which is located 170 kilometres west of Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba.

The bus was transporting 25 persons, according to Rob Hill, Commanding Officer of the Manitoba Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and officials in Manitoba were sending all of their resources to the location. Hospitals handled ten of those patients.

The bus was travelling south, when there should have been a stop and yield sign, according to RCMP Supt. Rob Lasson. Who had the right of way is crucial to the investigation, he added, adding that the bus was crossing the eastbound lanes when it was hit by the truck. Lasson also stated,The bus and truck drivers are still alive and being treated in hospitals as of right now. Lasson also stated, ”People are attempting to find out if their loved ones were involved as the public is in shock and has many questions.”

Nirmesh Vadera, who was employed by a business by the side of the road at the time of the crash, stated he hurried outside and discovered a transport vehicle on the road with a damaged engine. A bus was on fire in the grass by the side of the road.

In Dauphin, Manitoba, a Lutheran church has established a family support centre for kin. According to the police, those on the bus were residents of Dauphin and the surrounding districts.

The bus left from the senior centre on Thursday morning, according to Kim Armstrong, the center’s administrator. Losing so many members of our community is significant, and it is obviously shocking. She said, “We just pray for those who are alive.” According to Armstrong, community members and senior citizens frequently take bus trips to local casinos or events. In a statement, the truck business expressed its sadness at the collision but provided few clues as to what went wrong.
