Executives and employees of ClubLink Corporation have been charged after a car accident in Ontario’s Muskoka region resulted in the deaths of three young people who had allegedly been drinking at the Lake Joseph Club last summer.
The crash claimed the lives of Tyler Mulcahy and Cory Mintz, both 20, and Kourash Totonchian, 19, after Mulcahy’s car left the road and crashed into a river near Minett, Ont. Another passenger was injured, but escaped.
The 16 people facing two charges each – supplying liquor to people who are apparently intoxicated and permitting drunkenness on licenced premises – include people working in the restaurant at the time and Clublink directors and officials. ClubLink also faces two charges.
If convicted, ClubLink could receive fines of up to $250,000 for each count and the individuals could be fined up to $100,000 and receive 12-month jail sentences.
The accused are to appear in court on Jan. 27.
