A $22.5 million lawsuit has been launched by the Neville Lake family against convicted drunk driver Marco Muzzo and his family’s business Marel, in connection with the September 2015 crash that killed their three children and their grandfather.
The lawsuit was filed by grandmother, Neriza Neville and the children’s parents, Edward Lake and Jennifer Neville-Lake, their uncle Jonathan Neville and aunt Josephine Neville.
Muzzo was on his way home from the airport after his bachelor party in Miami when the Jeep he was in hit a minivan at Kirby Road and Kipling Avenue in Kleinburg.
Nine-year-old Daniel Neville-Lake, his five-year-old brother Harrison and their two-year-old sister Milly were killed in the Sept. 27 crash along with their 65-year-old grandfather Gary Neville.
Muzzo was charged after breath samples taken two hours after he was arrested showed that his blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit. (Pictured below)
In March, Muzzo was sentenced to 10 years in prision after pleading guilty to four counts of impaired driving causing death and two counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm.
In addition to naming Muzzo as a defendant, the lawsuit also targets his family construction business Marel, which owned the vehicle that Muzzo was driving.
