The driver of a speedboat that crashed into a Tappan Zee Bridge construction barge in July killing two passengers has been indicted by a Rockland County grand jury for criminally negligent homicide and manslaughter. Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe said Jojo K. John, a Nyack resident, was legally drunk and had traces of cocaine in his blood system.
The impact from the crash ended the lives of two 30-year old local residents. Lindsey Stewart, from Piermont, was to be married the day after the fatal incident and Mark Lennon, from Pearl River, who was going to be the best man in her wedding.
