The tragedy that has catapulted the small community of Humboldt into the limelight due to the 15 lives lost in a tragic car accident has left the entire country completely shattered. Though while the mourning for those who's lives have been lost has only just begun, there is one person involved in the crash who hasn't been talked about as much.
The other driver involved in the crash has been relatively left out for the most part in the media, neither criminalized nor mentioned past describing that the crash involved two vehicles- where many believe one had ignored a stop sign.
While one might think many would hold a degree of resentment for the other driver, a Reddit thread has appeared with an open letter that hundreds have contributed to, proving Canadians' reactions have been pretty much the exact opposite:
The thread, titled "Dear Saskatchewan truck driver" started with one user penning an open blurb to the driver, noting that nobody thought he had actively went out of his way to kill those 15 men, and that he should not carry that kind of guilt. The user's comment was joined with hundreds of others who echoed his statement, but also offered further context on the intersection itself. Some noting that the intersection was no stranger to a fatal accident.
