The driver of a transport truck that collided with a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team has been charged.
   
RCMP say the 29-year-old driver was arrested this morning (Friday) at his Calgary home.
   
He faces 16 counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and 13 counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily injury.
   
He is to appear in provincial court in Saskatchewan next week.
    
RCMP Superintendent Derek Williams says that they underwent a thorough investigation over the past three months.

    The Broncos were on their way to a playoff game when the truck and the bus crashed at a rural Saskatchewan intersection on April 6.
   
Sixteen people, including 10 players, died as a result of the crash, and 13 players were injured.
   
The truck driver was not hurt.
