NEWMARKET, Ontario — A bail hearing has been postponed for an accused drunk driver involved in a Toronto-area crash that claimed the lives of three children and their grandfather.

Marco Muzzo’s lawyer asked the court to reschedule the hearing for Nov. 12.

Muzzo, 29, is facing a dozen impaired-driving offences and six charges related to the dangerous operation of a motor vehicle in the Sept. 27 collision in Vaughan, Ont.

Daniel Neville-Lake, 9, his brother Harrison, 5, their sister Milly, 2, and their 65-year-old grandfather Gary Neville died as a result of the crash.

The children’s grandmother and great-grandmother were also seriously injured in the crash.

Muzzo’s lawyer, Brian Greenspan, has previously said it was too early to say how his client would plead.

The Muzzo family owns the construction company Marel Contractors and is worth nearly $1.8 billion, according to Canadian Business magazine. The family has issued a statement expressing condolences to the victims’ relatives.
