Drunk driver’ indicted for friend’s death in off-ramp crash

January 12, 2018

A man accused of drunkenly zooming off the Manhattan Bridge at 65 mph and crashing the day after Christmas — killing his teenage pal — was indicted Thursday on charges that could land him up to 15 years behind bars.

Suspect Gerald Joseph, 22, appeared extremely emotional as he faced the judge, holding his head in his hands and looking at the ceiling with tears in his eyes as he was indicted in Manhattan Criminal Court on manslaughter and vehicular-manslaughter charges in the second degree.
