A 29-year-old Ontario man who pleaded guilty in a crash north of Toronto that killed three children and their grandfather was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Tuesday.
Marco Muzzo, 29, pleaded guilty last month to four counts of impaired driving causing death and two of impaired driving causing bodily harm.
Justice Michelle Fuerst handed down her decision at a Newmarket courthouse Tuesday morning with Muzzo also receiving a ban on driving for 12 years when he is released.
“In one fell swoop he decimated an entire generation of the Neville-Lake family,” Fuerst said in her ruling.
Daniel Neville-Lake, 9, his brother Harrison, 5, their sister Milly, 2, and the kids’ 65-year-old grandfather were all killed on Sept. 27, 2015 after the mini-van they were in was struck by another vehicle at the intersection of Kipling Avenue and Kirby Road northeast of Kleinburg, Ont.
