A trucking company from Calgary that owns the semi truck which collided with the Humboldt Broncos bus last Friday killing 15 people has been ordered to keep its vehicles off the road.
A spokesman with Alberta Transportation says Adesh Deol Trucking Ltd. started operating last fall. John Archer said the government suspended the commercial carrier’s safety fitness certificate on Monday.
In a statement, Archer says “This is standard procedure.” He added the company has not been involved in any collissions, or had any violations or convictions until Friday.
The hockey team was heading to when the crash occurred at an intersection north of Tisdale killing 15 and injuring 14 others—some of whom remain in critical condition.
RCMP have said the truck driver survived the accident.
