Death toll from Manitoba bus crash rises to 16

The death toll from last week’s fatal bus crash in western Manitoba has risen to 16 after a woman who was in critical condition died of her injuries in hospital Tuesday.

Manitoba RCMP confirmed the woman’s death in a brief update Wednesday.

Nine people remain in hospital following the June 15 crash on the Trans-Canada Highway near Carberry, west of Winnipeg. Four of those patients are in critical condition.

“Shared Health and Prairie Mountain Health would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of the patient involved in the collision who succumbed to her injuries yesterday (Tuesday),” Manitoba’s Shared Health said in a statement.


A minibus was carrying a group of seniors from Dauphin, Man., and the surrounding area to a casino when it went into the path of an oncoming semi-trailer truck.

The province is scheduled to share the names of those killed on Thursday.
