A 13-year-old player had a broken arm and was taken to hospital, but no one else was injured, said police.

“I can say that the roads were bad at the time and I would expect that that would have at least contributed to the accident,” said Const. Chad Morrison.

“We would recommend that people be careful,” he said. “There were other vehicles that went off the road around there as well, in addition to the bus.”
