Joe Scali, the spokesperson for the West Parry Sound Ontario Provincial Police – reported by Global News – said both boats left the scene and when they arrived at their respective locations, they reached out for emergency services.
TMZ claims the larger boat did have its lights on during the time of the 11:30 pm crash. Sources who spoke with the gossip publication claimed that O’Leary believes there exists video evidence which can prove the other boat didn’t have its navigation lights turned on.
Reportedly, the incident left two people dead, Gary Poltash, 64, and Suzana Brito, 48, from Florida and Ontario respectively. According to O’Leary, Linda was driving the boat at the time, and she passed a DUI test.
