Prosecutor: Point Pleasant Man Charged In Fatal Crash

A Point Pleasant man who prosecutors say was driving drunk when he caused a fatal crash has been charged with death by auto.Executive Assistant Ocean County Prosecutor Michel Paulhus tells the Asbury Park Press that 28-year-old Robert Cook Jr. was driving in Brick when his car veered into oncoming traffic and collided with another vehicle around 3 p.m. Saturday.

Jane Eager, an 80-year-old Brick resident who was in the other car, was pronounced dead at the scene. Cook suffered minor injuries.

Cook was freed Sunday after posting $100,000 cash bail. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted on the death by auto count.

It wasn’t known Sunday if Cook had retained a lawyer, and he could not be reached for comment.
