Manslaughter Charge Filed In Hudson River Crash[VIDEO]

The driver of a speedboat that slammed into a construction barge on New York’s Hudson River — hurling a bride-to-be and her fiance’s best man into the water — has been charged with vehicular manslaughter.Authorities say 35-year-old Jojo John of Nyack was also charged with three counts of vehicular assault at his hospital bedside as he recovers from Friday night’s crash.

Rockland County Sheriff’s Department Chief William Barbera says John’s bail was set at $250,000. He says the man will be transported to jail after he’s released from the hospital. Barbera says John is suspected of operating the boat while intoxicated.

Earlier today, authorities pulled a woman’s body from the water that matches the description of 30-year-old Lindsey Stewart. The bride-to-be was hurled into the water after the accident near the Tappan¬†Zee¬†Bridge, north of New York City.

Stewart, of Piermont, N.Y., worked for an insurance company. She was set to be married Aug. 10. Her fiance, art teacher Brian Bond, was among four others injured in the crash.

Rescuers are still trying to locate one other passenger, her fiance’s best man, 30-year-old Mark Lennon.

Officials say the groom-to-be and three others were hospitalized.
