Famous Shark Tank investor Kevin O’Leary is lucky to be alive after being in a deadly boating accident that left two people dead.
Kevin O’Leary’s Deadly Boat Crash
O’Leary was enjoying a boat ride on Lake Joseph in Ontario last Saturday evening when his boat struck another small watercraft. The incident resulted in two deaths. Earlier this week, the Ontario Provincial Police released a public press release. The police statement confirmed that the tragic accident had indeed resulted in two casualties.
The investment guru released a statement to ET! after the event to let fans know that he was okay and that he was cooperating with the local authorities as best he could. He kept the statement simple, telling the media he was being courteous of the privacy of the involved parties.
“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,” he added.– Kevin O’Leary
Who was involved in the crash?
According to a recent report on TMZ Kevin’s wife, Linda was steering the boat when the accident happened. The publication reports that Mrs. O’Leary was given a DUI test and passed without issue. The O’Leary’s suffered no major injuries.
TMZ reported that while no charges have been filed, an investigation is on-going. Kevin O’Leary has stated in all reports that the accident was a result of the victims’ boat not having any kind of lights on. Also, the other boat reportedly fled the scene of the accident, making it a hit and run. Video footage overseeing that part of the lake during the time of the accident is said to exist. O’Leary is hopeful that this evidence will free him and his wife of any responsibility. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.
