"There is no playbook on what to do in cases like this". The RCMP reports fatalities have been confirmed, along with a number of injuries.

Authorities have yet to identify all of the deceased. Twenty-nine people were on the bus.

Fourteen other people were rushed to hospitals. Fifteen others were injured.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said there were 28 people on the bus when the crash happened on Friday afternoon.

In the early hours of Saturday, Royal Canadian Mounted Police inspector Ted Munro said rescue efforts were ongoing and said they had set up an information and support centre for families at the Nipawin Apostolic Church. He was detained initially but is not now in custody and his case is not now being investigated as a criminal investigation.

"It's a frightful accident, my God", he said.

The team was heading north for a Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League playoff game against the Nipawin Hawks.
