TORONTO – The man who was charged behind a fatal weekend crash which claimed the lives of three people will be remanded in police custody until his next court appearance which will be at the end of the month.
The suspect, 21-year-old Roma Luskin from Toronto, is facing 16 criminal charges such as negligence causing death and impaired driving in connection to the late Saturday night fatal crash.
Luskin’s lawyer had asked for more time in order to review the evidence. The next appearance of Luskin will be via video on the 30th day of October wherein the judge will make a decision whether or not Luskin will receive bail.
Toronto police said that a 1999 BMW was travelling a 60 km/h zone in a high speed at about 200 kilometres per hour shortly before midnight when it struck a minivan that was carrying five passengers. The impact of the crash split the car in two.
Alcohol is believed by the police to have played a factor in the crash.
Three of the minivan’s occupants, 44-year-old Hon To, her daughter, 24-year-old Christine Taing and a 64-year-old family friend, were ejected from the vehicle and was declared dead on the scene.
The two other occupants, Pho Taing, To’s husband, and another female passenger, were taken to the hospital sustaining critical injuries. The group was coming home from church.
The suspect, Luskin who resides together with his parents in the area, was on probation status when the tragic crash happened.
