The death toll in a fatal crash in Vaughan on Sunday has risen to 4.
Police confirm that 3 children under 10, all siblings, and their 65-year-old grandfather have died following the 4pm collision. The children have been identified as Harry, Millie and Daniel Neville-Lake. One succumbed to injuries Sunday evening, while the other two were taken off life-support overnight.
The car’s two other occupants are expected to survive.
The 29-year-old man who is alleged to have caused the accident that has ruined a family is facing an impaired driving charge, and will appear in Newmarket court today.
The man charged is Marco Muzzo, who blew more than two times the legal limit after being pulled from his wrecked Range Rover.
Here’s the official press release from police:
On Sunday, September 27, 2015, at 4:10 p.m., police were called to a serious three-vehicle collision that had occurred in the intersection of Kirby Road and Kipling Avenue. One of the vehicles involved had six occupants inside, all suffering injuries. A 65-year-old man succumbed to his injuries at the scene. Two adult females were removed from the same vehicle and taken to hospital with serious injuries, where they remain. Their condition has improved to stable and they are expected to survive.
Three children, all under the age of 10 were also removed from the vehicle suffering from life-threatening injuries. They were taken to hospital where, sadly, a nine-year-old boy succumbed to his injuries yesterday.
We are saddened to say that shortly after midnight the other two children, a five-year-old boy and a two-year-old girl, succumbed to their injuries in hospital.
There were two occupants in a third vehicle involved that were not injured.
A 29-year-old man from King Township was the sole occupant in one of the vehicles involved and he was arrested and has been charged. He suffered minor injuries as a result of the collision.
He will be appearing in the Ontario Court of Justice in Newmarket on Monday, September 28, 2015.
