Kevin O’Leary was a passenger on a boat that was involved in a tragic collision on the weekend in Muskoka, resulting in two fatalities.

TMZ was the first to report the crash, which took place near Emerald Island in Ontario’s Seguin Township at approximately 11:30 p.m. on Saturday night.

A 64-year-old man from Florida was reported to be fatally injured in the incident, while a 48-year-old woman from Markham was rushed to hospital after sustaining critical injuries.

“On late Saturday night I was a passenger in a boat that was involved in a tragic collision with another watercraft that had no navigation lights on and then fled the scene. I am fully cooperating with law enforcement in their investigation,” said O’Leary in a statement to ET Canada.

“Out of respect for the victims’ families and to fully support the ongoing investigation I feel it is inappropriate to make further comments at this time. My heartfelt prayers and condolences to the victims, the families and those affected by this loss,” the statement continued.

Meanwhile, O’Leary’s rep told ET Canada: “We are devastated by the event that occurred on Saturday night on Lake Joseph. Mr. O’Leary is cooperating with law enforcement in their investigation into this tragedy. We respect the investigation process being conducted by the Police, and will not comment further. Our thoughts and prayers are with victims and their families. We ask that everyone respect Mr. O’Leary and his family’s privacy during this time.”

According to MyMuskokaNow, the OPP has put “multiple resources” into investigating the crash, “including forensic services and the marine collision unit.”

On Monday, Detective Inspector Martin Graham of the Criminal Investigation Branch out of Orillia told MyMuskokaNow it was too early in the investigation to state whether alcohol was a factor in the accident, although “that question formed part of the investigation.”

Graham added that the two vessels involved were both pleasure craft, and both the Florida man and Markham woman were passengers on a 13-person vessel that was struck by a smaller boat.

On Wednesday, the Ontario Provincial Police released a statement to media confirming that the OPP “continues to investigate the fatal collision involving two vessels on Lake Joseph near Emerald Island in Seguin Township, which occurred on Saturday, August 24, 2019, at approximately 11:30 p.m.”

The identities of the victims of the crash have been revealed as “Gary Poltash, 64, from Florida, was fatally injured at the scene. On August 27, 2019, Susanne Brito, age 48, from Uxbridge, Ont., succumbed to her injuries in hospital.”
