As details of the devastating crash between a bus carrying a Canadian junior hockey team and a truck emerged, prime minister Justin Trudeau sent an emotional message to the mourning nation.

‘An entire country is in shock and mourning,’ Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement released on Saturday.

‘This is every parent’s worst nightmare. No one should ever have to see their child leave to play the sport they love and never come back.’

Canadians have come together to support the victims’ families and a GoFundMe page has raised more than $2.5million in less than 48 hours.

According to local news outlet CTV, there was a three-hour wait at a Saskatoon blood clinic as people were eager to help in any way they could.

The collision took place Friday at 5pm when the tractor-trailer truck and the bus crashed in Saskatchewan, Canada. There were 29 people on board the bus, including the driver.

The junior team on the bus, the Humboldt Broncos, were headed to the town of Nipawin for a semi-finals playoff game when the accident took place on Highway 35, about 19 miles north of Tisdale, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

The victims so far have been identified by friends and family as Head Coach Darcy Haugan, team Captain Logan Schatz, 20, Jaxon Joseph, 20, Stephen Wack, 21, Adam Herold, 16, Logan Hunter, 18, and radio announcer Tyler Bieber.

Logan Boulet, 21, was taken off life support on Saturday and his organs were donated.

The crash sent shock waves of grief through the team’s small hometown and a country united by the national sport.

President Donald Trump shared his condolences on Twitter saying: ‘Just spoke to @JustinTrudeau to pay my highest respect and condolences to the families of the terrible Humboldt Team tragedy. May God be with them all!’
