STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.-- A 38-year-old Staten Island man was arrested over the weekend in connection with a New Jersey crash that killed two adults and an infant.

Patrick Monahan was charged with three counts of aggravated manslaughter, three counts of vehicular homicide and one count of aggravated assault in connection with the March 27 incident on Convery Boulevard in Perth Amboy, according to an NJ.com report.

According to public records, Monahan is a Mariners Harbor resident. He is accused of driving aggressively, cutting in and out of traffic, and traveling 40 miles per hour in excess of the posted speed limit seconds prior to striking a Ford Minivan, according to the report.

Police found suspected controlled dangerous substances during a search of Monahans 2018 Ram pickup truck, according to the report.

The passengers in the minivan who died in the crash were a 47-year-old woman, a 44-year-old woman and an 8-month old. Both women reportedly were residents of Elizabeth, N.J., said the report.

Authorities said the crash occurred while Monahan was in violation of an executive order issued by New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy that restricts non-essential activities in the state. Monahan was charged additionally in accordance with that order.

He allegedly told police he was in town to visit friends.
