Fourteen people were also injured when the team bus collided with a tractor trailer at a highway intersection on Friday.
The family of Broncos player Logan Boulet, (photo lower left) who is on life support, says they will donate his organs to six people in need.
RCMP are reenacting what could have possibly happened as the semi trailer unit would have had to yield to the bus at the intersection.
The truck’s driver was uninjured in the crash and was released after being questioned by police, Saskatchewan RCMP Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki said.
Checking early this morning, a funding effort on the website GoFundMe had raised more than $2.9 million for the players and families affected by the crash.
