Manitoba’s health authority says six patients are in critical condition a day after a highway crash between a semi-truck and minibus killed 15 people.
Another four patients are being cared for in a surgical unit.
Police have said a group of mostly seniors from Dauphin, Man., and the surrounding area were heading to a casino when the fiery crash happened near the town of Carberry, west of Winnipeg.
Rescue crews encountered a horrific scene of bodies on the road.
Shared Health says those hospitalized range in age from early 60s to late 80s and are being treated for a variety of serious injuries.
RCMP have said it appears the bus was crossing the Trans-Canada Highway, heading south on Highway 5, when it was struck by the semi.
