The truck driver who killed 16 people and injured 13 when he crashed into a Canadian hockey team's bus last April has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Thirty-year-old Jaskirat Singh Sidhu ran through a stop sign going over 50 miles per hour when he hit the Humboldt Broncos' bus in rural Saskatchewan. Judge Inez Cardinal gave her decision after speaking about the survivors and the 100 impact statements from victim's families.

Sidhu's lawyers say he will likely be deported to India after serving his sentence.
