RCMP still investigating Broncos crash
June 12, 2018, 2:59 pm
As the investigation into the Humboldt Broncos bus tragedy continues, the Saskatchewan RCMP have provided an update.
The RCMP's Collision Reconstruction Team and Major Crimes Unit continue to methodically analyze the data and evidence gathered.
An important component of this investigation is the collision reconstruction analysis.
Once completed, the analysis will be peer reviewed in order to validate the findings and conclusions. Peer review is a standard practice for complex investigations such as this.
Investigators are also preparing for Crown consultation at the conclusion of the investigation which occurs in many serious, sensitive, and complex investigations.
Our investigators remain in close contact with victims’ families and regularly reach out to them to provide whatever support they can.
Investigations, by their very nature, are dynamic.
What investigators learn today can influence what action they need to take tomorrow.
Based on that, we are not able to provide an estimate as to when the investigation might be complete.
“We are all anxious to learn the results of this investigation to assist in understanding what led to this terrible tragedy,” said Supt. Derek Williams, Officer in Charge of Saskatchewan RCMP Major Crimes, “We are committed to sharing the outcome of the investigation as soon as we can.”
