RCMP today released the names of the deceased in the Carberry collision of last week.

Supt. Jeff Asmundson, West District Commander, Manitoba RCMP, says the 16 people included mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and grandparents, whose decades of contributions helped make Dauphin what it is. He adds they were gone in an instant.

The word tragedy has been used a lot over the last week, but never has that word had as much meaning as it does when we look at these photographs. The impact of this loss will be felt for a long time to come. https://t.co/CfzRCUEU72 #rcmpmb pic.twitter.com/RSEarjRHtJ
