At least 14 people were killed in a crash involving a tractor-trailer and a bus carrying a Canadian junior hockey team on Friday in Canada's Saskatchewan province.

According to authorities, 28 people, including the driver, were on the Humboldt Broncos’ bus at the time of the crash. 14 people were injured and were taken to the hospital, with three in critical condition.

The team was headed to Nipawin for a Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League semifinals playoff game when the crash happened.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed his condolences to the victims in a tweet:

The victims have not yet been identified and authorities have not confirmed whether those killed were players or coaches.

"Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the families of our staff and athletes as well as to all who have been impacted by this horrible tragedy," Broncos team president, Kevin Garinger, said in a statement. "Our Broncos family is in shock as we try to come to grips with our incredible loss."
