HUMBOLDT, Sask. - Saskatchewan RCMP say it may be a long time before investigators can determine what caused a collision between a bus and a transport truck in Saskatchewan that left 14 dead and 15 others injured.

Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki, with the Saskatchewan RCMP, says the investigation will be looking at all aspects of the crash to figure out what happened.

The crash killed Humboldt Broncos head coach Darcy Haugan, team captain Logan Schatz, top forward Jaxon Joseph and the team's play-by-play radio announcer Tyler Bieber.

The names of others killed have not been confirmed.

Zablocki says the truck driver was not injured and was detained by police before being released.

The Humboldt Broncos, in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, was on its way to play in Game 5 of a semi-final playoff game against the Nipawin Hawks.

Darren Opp, president of the Hawks, said a semi T-boned the players' bus, but police have not confirmed that.
