Nine in hospital after fiery bus crash in Manitoba; two moved out of critical care

Two elderly people injured in a violent bus accident on a highway in Manitoba earlier this month have been removed from the emergency department.

Nine patients are still hospitalized, and two of the four receiving life-saving treatment are improving, according to state health agency Shared Health.

On June 15, seniors were riding a minibus for a day trip to a casino in Carberry, southwestern Manitoba, when the bus rammed into the path of a semi-trailer truck on the Trans-Canada Highway.

The resulting high-speed collision killed 16 passengers, including one who later died in hospital.

There were 25 people on the bus, including the driver, who were from the Dauphin and surrounding areas.

Funerals for the victims began last weekend.

This report by the Canadian Press Agency was first published on June 30, 2023.
