News Man sentenced who crashed speedboat, killing bride and best man By ALISON FOX email@example.com @AlisonFox September 16, 2014 7:18 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email A Rockland County man who drunkenly crashed his speedboat into a barge last year, killing a bride-to-be and the best man, was sentenced to two years in prison Tuesday. In July 2013 an intoxicated Jojo John, 36, drove a 19-foot speedboat into a construction barge on the Hudson River just south of the Tappan Zee Bridge, said Rockland County District Attorney Zugibe in a statement. The impact threw Lindsey Stewart and her fiance's best man, Mark Lennon, into the river, killing them, Zugibe said. There was very little visibility when John crashed at about 10:40 p.m., Zugibe said. John was both drunk at the time and had cocaine metabolites in his system, he said. John pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree vehicular manslaughter. By ALISON FOX firstname.lastname@example.org @AlisonFox Alison covers law enforcement and breaking news.
