SAINTE-ANNE-DE-KENT, N.B. - The president of a New Brunswick hockey league says most of the players injured in a bus crash early Saturday are home from the hospital.

The passenger bus was carrying about 20 people from the North East Senior Hockey League's Cap-Pele team on Highway 11 near Sainte-Anne-de-Kent.

The driver lost control of the coach _ police say road conditions were icy at the time.

Roger Brun, president of the league, says only one person remains in hospital for observation of a head injury, but he is expected to make a full recovery.

He says about a dozen others, whose injuries include cuts, bruises and broken bones, have been released.

The team, whose players are in their 20s and 30s, was travelling home to Cap-Pele from a game in northern New Brunswick.
