Ryan was one of 13 people injured when a bus carrying the hockey team, trainers and coaches collided with a semi-truck at a highway intersection near Tisdale on April 6.
"There's only so many text messages, or so many times people can say, 'Stay strong, ' or, 'Get well soon.' I think you want to take their mind off it, and talk about something other than that". The man, who has not been identified, remains in consistent contact with the RCMP, he said.
All things told, $15,185,300 was collected from 142,029 donations in over 80 countries, and the page became the second-biggest GoFundMe in the history of the website, with only the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund ($21.5 million) topping its number. RCMP say it is to soon in the investigation to say whether the truck driver blew through the stop sign.
Investigators have sent the engine control modules from both vehicles to California for further analysis of speed, change of speed, application of brakes and RPMs, he added. More interviews are scheduled in the coming days and weeks.
The crash occurred April 6 at the intersection of Highway 35 and Highway 335.
Collision experts have said it could be months before investigators determine what caused the crash.
Over $15 million was raised for the Humboldt Broncos on GoFundMe following the tragic crash that killed 16 people..
