    Unhappy 7 Canadian high school basketball players and 1 adult killed in highway crash

    BATHURST, New Brunswick (AP) -- A van carrying a Canadian high school boys' basketball team collided with a truck Saturday, killing seven students and the coach's wife on their way home from a game.
    Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Derek Strong said the seven players -- between the ages of 15 and 18 -- were pronounced dead at the crash site after their van crossed the center line and hit the tractor-trailer shortly after midnight.

    Especially the coach driving, having accidentally killed his own wife and the players.

    My prayers to all the families involved! How sad! This happened to a team of baseball players from Tiffin, PA when their chartered bus went up the wrong ramp in Georgia and killed the bus driver, and several players. That happened 2 years ago.

    How heartbreaking!!!!

    I live in the Moncton area- where these kids were travelling back from after their game... our entire province is in mourning and we have buried quite a few teens in the past six months due to driving accidents...very devastating.
