Colin Eadie, 23 of Toronto, was charged with “operating a vessel with a blood-alcohol content exceeding the legal limit of 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood and dangerous operation of a vessel causing death.”

The accident happened on Sunday morning July 10 at approximately 3:15 a.m.

OPP said that the vessel Eadie was driving struck Pancake Island in Lake of Bays, killing one person and sending two people to Huntsville hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police will not reveal the name of the deceased or the identities of the other people involved in the incident.

Frew said yesterday that the other victims are not from the area and the detachment is waiting until next of kin are notified.

Frew added that no official cause of death has been forthcoming from the coroner.

Eadie was arrested at the scene and appeared in court Monday for a bail hearing.

No return court date had been set as of Tuesday morning.

The investigation continues.
