Marco Muzzo charged with 18 counts including causing death

Marco Muzzo is charged with impaired driving in a car crash in Vaughan, Ont., last Sunday that resulted in the death of three young siblings and their grandfather. The 29-year-old from King Township was transported to the Newmarket Courthouse by an Ontario Provincial Police van. The 18 charges against Muzzo include impaired driving and dangerous driving causing death.
Muzzo's mother and his fiancée were accompanied by five private security guards after they arrived at the court ahead of Friday's hearing. The Muzzo family owns the construction company Marel Contractors and is worth nearly $1.8 billion, according to Canadian Business magazine.

Nine-year-old Daniel Neville-Lake, his five-year-old brother Harrison, their two-year-old sister Milly and their 65-year-old grandfather died in the crash.

"Please keep us in your prayers. God bless."
Jennifer Neville-Lake said she first heard about the crash while watching TV. She also posted on Facebook Monday morning that "all of my children have gone home to God with my dad. My mother and grandmother are still in the hospital."

In the post to the Today's Mom Facebook group, she also thanks people for their support. "Your kind words and messages mean so much to my husband and I as we sit in our son's empty room surrounded by our children's things,"
Police sources say Muzzo was driving at least 120 km/h down Kirby Avenue -- a 60 km/h-road -- when he allegedly ran a stop sign and T-boned the minivan travelling down Kirby Road, which then hit a third vehicle.

Sources told CTV that Muzzo took two breath tests after the crash, and allegedly both times, blew more than twice the legal limit of 80 milligrams in both tests.
