Owner of trucking company involved in Humboldt bus crash charged

The owner of the Alberta trucking company that was involved in the Humboldt bus crash tragedy has been charged.

Alberta Transportation Minister Brian Mason said Sukhmander Singh of Adesh Deol Trucking has been charged with non-compliance with federal and provincial safety regulations.

Sixteen people were killed and 13 injured when a semi-tractor trailer collided with the Broncos hockey bus in Saskatchewan last April.

In total, eight charges have been laid. They include failure to maintain logs for driver hours of service, failure to monitor the compliance of a driver under safety regulations, having more than one daily log for any day and failure to have or follow a written safety program.

The allegations haven’t been proven in court. A federal crown lawyer will be handling the prosecution.
