Truck driver responsible for Humboldt Broncos crash gets eight years in prison

A truck driver who caused the deadly Humboldt Broncos crash has been sentenced to eight years in prison. Jaskirat Singh Sidhu of Calgary had pleaded guilty earlier this year to 29 counts of dangerous driving. He stood quietly and looked ahead at the judge as he was sentenced Friday. Judge Inez Cardinal told court in Melfort, Sask., that she approached the sentence knowing ‘nothing can turn back the clock.’ She also noted that Sidhu's remorse and guilty plea were mitigating factors, but added she had to consider the number of people who died or were severely injured and face lifelong challenges. Sidhu barrelled through a stop sign and into the path of the junior hockey team's bus at a rural Saskatchewan intersection last April. Sixteen people were killed and 13 were injured.
