Nearly two months after the Humboldt Broncos bus tragedy, answers about how the crash between the team bus and a semi-trailer truck are few and far between.
When contacted by 650 CKOM on Monday, Saskatchewan RCMP said there were no updates beyond what was shared during an April 19 news conference.
The update by Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki noted the semi was in the intersection at the time of the April 6 collision, but didn’t reveal a cause or whether the driver would be charged.
While RCMP wouldn’t update the investigation to media, a family member of one of the 15 victims told 650 CKOM investigators have been in regular contact.
The family member said they were told by officers the investigation would be completed by early June, at which point another police agency would review the evidence to compare conclusions.
RCMP did address a rumour on social media suggesting the truck driver — who isn’t facing any charges at this point— had fled the country. A spokesperson said the driver is still in Canada, and is maintaining contact with investigators.
