A fatal boating accident last summer has now resulted in charges against a local man.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office says Jeffrey M. Jastrzembski, 53, was arrested on January 11th and charged in connection with a fatal boating accident that happened on August 12th.

Here's how the crash occurred, according to authorities:

It is alleged that Jastrzembski accelerated the boat he was operating forward at a high rate of speed in the direction of the docks and made an aggressive turn port side causing the boat’s propeller to strike and kill Norma Michaels, 70, also from Atlantic City.

The accident happened on the Intercoastal Waterway in Atlantic City near the Albany Avenue Bridge.

Charges filed

Prosecutors say Jastrzembski has been charged with first-degree aggravated manslaughter.

An investigation revealed his blood alcohol concentration was allegedly between 0.19% and 0.23%.

The investigation was a joint effort between the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office Fatal Crash Investigative Unit and New Jersey State Police.
