SHARK Tank star Kevin O’Leary’s wife Linda received her verdict in a 2019 boat crash that took the lives of two people.
The reality star’s spouse was facing charges of careless operation of a vessel.
According to the CBC, Linda was found not guilty in connection with the tragic boat crash in 2019.
The incident, which occurred on Lake Joseph in Canada, led to two deaths and injured three others.
According to the outlet, Linda was behind the wheel of a smaller boat at the time of the crash, and hit a larger ship that was stopped in the water.
Due to the collision, Linda’s boat went over the bow of the larger ship and killed two passengers, Gary Potash and Susanne Brito.
Aside from Linda, her husband Kevin was also on board, as was a friend of the couple.
During the verdict, court Judge Richard Humphrey reportedly said prosecutors had failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Linda was operating the boat without due care or consideration for others.
The judge also ruled that the other boat had its lights off.
Following the crash, the Shark Tank would release a statement that read: “On late Saturday night I was a passenger in a boat that was involved in a tragic collision with another watercraft that had no navigation lights on and then fled the scene.
“I am fully cooperating with law enforcement in their investigation. Out of respect for the victims’ families and to fully support the ongoing investigation I feel it is inappropriate to make further comments at this time.”
He concluded: “My heartfelt prayers and condolences to the victims, the families and those affected by this loss.”
Kevin, 67, and Linda tied the knot in 1990, and while they parted ways in 2011, they would reunite two years later.
The pair share two kids.
