Middletown Man Indicted in Fatal Boat Collision

A boater who allegedly was drunk when his vessel collided with another on a central New Jersey river two years ago has been indicted on a vehicular homicide charge.

A Monmouth County grand jury handed up the indictment against George Harrington on Monday.

The 41-year-old Middletown man was released after posting $150,000 bail. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

Harrington’s lawyer, Christopher Adams, tells the Asbury Park Press that Harrington maintains his innocence.

The charge stems from a July 2011 crash on the Navesink River in Middletown.

Authorities say Harrington was operating a Boston Whaler that collided with a Stingray powerboat. Christopher Plante, a 50-year-old Keansburg resident who was in the powerboat, was killed in the accident.
