Alberta Transportation says there’s no legal reason to suspend a new company linked to the owner of the trucking company involved in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.

The safety certificate for Calgary-based Adesh Deol Trucking Ltd. was pulled following the April 6 crash outside Tisdale, Sask., that killed 16 people and injured three others.

And while Adesh Deol remains on suspension by the province pending provincial and RCMP investigations, Alberta Transportation confirmed on Tuesday another numbered trucking company has been registered at the same Calgary address as Adesh Deol.

“It is our understanding that one of the trucks and one of the drivers listed from Adesh Deol Trucking Ltd. are operating with this numbered company,” the ministry said in a statement.

Alberta Transportation said the only driver employed by the new company, legally named 1929282 Alberta Ltd., “is not the driver who was involved in the Humboldt incident.”

The ministry said the new company registered with the province on May 9. But the new company was also put under a suspension when officials noticed similarities between 1929282 and Adesh Deol.

The temporary suspension of the new company was lifted on June 1, with the province saying it “had no legal grounds to maintain the suspension.”

The RCMP said they are preparing to talk to Crown prosecutors about potential charges from the crash.
