NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Saturday marks the one-year anniversary of a Hudson River boat crash that killed a bride-to-be and her groom’s best man.

Prosecutors say Jojo John was drunk last July when he crashed his boat into a construction barge at the Tappan Zee Bridge.

Bride-to-be Lindsey Stewart and her fiancee’s best man Mark Lennon were both killed, just two weeks before the wedding.

John has pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter. He will be sentenced in September and faces up to two years in prison.
