Two people who died in a collision near Weyburn on Saturday have been identified as Eric Calibaba and Dale Chessall.
A GoFundMe page has been started to support Charissa Calibaba, Eric’s wife, and Dale’s daughter.
According to the GoFundMe page, Charissa recently gave birth to a girl, Vanna. The funds raised will go toward helping the new mother in the following year.
“Charissa and Vanna can use any donation big or small to help get them through her maternity leave this next year,” the page reads.
"Just was one of those guys that you wanted to be around. Everybody got along with him great," Kelly Orsted, Calibaba's former coach said. "I never saw him off the ice ever get into an argument or anything, but on the ice he was always a rough and tough player. He's a guy that's going to be missed. As a family man he would have been a great father and husband.”
RCMP, fire and EMS responded to the scene around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.
According to police, two vehicles were heading east bound and another was heading west. There are not many details available about the collision, but one of the vehicles was engulfed in flames after the crash.
