“Shark Tank” star Kevin O’Leary was reportedly involved in a boat crash on a lake in Ontario, Canada, that left two people dead.
The crash occurred on Lake Joseph near Emerald Island, where law enforcement from Seguin Township, Ontario, are investigating. One of the boats involved was reportedly larger than the other, with a capacity of up to 13 occupants, and the second boat was more like a “ski boat-type vessel.”
Gary Poltash, 64, of Florida, and Susanne Brito, 48, of Uxbridge, Ontario, died in the crash.
O’Leary released the following statement via his agent Jay Sures at United Talent Agency: “Late Saturday night I was a passenger in a boat that that had a tragic collision with another craft that had no navigation lights on and then fled the scene of the accident. I am fully cooperating with authorities. Out of respect for the families who have lost loved ones and to fully support the ongoing investigation I feel it is inappropriate to make further comments at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with all the families affected.”
