“SHARK TANK” Star And His Wife Involved In Deadly Boat Crash

“Shark Tank” star Kevin O’Leary’s boat was involved in a fatal crash on Saturday in Ontario, Canada, according to TMZ.

A smaller boat owned by O’Leary reportedly rammed into a larger boat on Lake Joseph and went directly over its bow, striking a male passenger in the head and killing him instantly.

The incident apparently happened well after dark, around 11:30 p.m. according to CTV News. The man who died is a 64-year-old from Florida.

A 48-year-old Canadian woman was also injured and is reportedly on a ventilator with “significant brain damage.”

A source close to the larger boat’s owner told police there was enough light at the time of the incident to identify the people on O’Leary’s boat. The owner believed he saw O’Leary and his wife, but that has not been confirmed.

TMZ spoke with O’Leary, also known as “Mr. Wonderful,” after the accident. He said he is following police protocol and refused to comment. Cops have said will not release the names of anyone involved unless criminal charges are filed.

Sources told TMZ a critical element in the investigation is whether the larger boat had its lights on so that it was visible to the driver of O’Leary’s boat at the time of the accident.
