The RCMP have provided an update on their investigation of the April 6th Humboldt Broncos bus accident, even as reconstruction teams are back at the scene today using vehicles similar to those involved to take further measurements and analyze sight lines.
Investigators have conducted more than 50 interviews, “including independent witnesses, the driver of the tractor trailer unit, the owner of the trucking company and with some of the victims,” according to Saskatchewan commanding officer, Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki.
He says more interviews are scheduled in the coming days and weeks.
Zablocki says among evidence collected so far were the engine control modules from both vehicles, which were sent to a lab in California for analysis.
“These engine control modules have the ability to record pre-collision data, inlcuding speed and any changes in speed, the RPM of the engines, and the application of brakes.”
No charges have been laid so far after the April 6th accident left 16 dead and 13 injured.
