Holmdel Car Crash Victim Charged with Drunk Driving, Cocaine Possession
Jarrod Isoldi, 39, was severely injured after he crashed his Aston Martin sports car on Holmdel Road, near Dante's Way, on August 22.
Holmdel Police say Jarrod Isoldi had a blood alcohol content three times the legal limit and cocaine in his system when he apparently failed to negotiate a gradual curve on Holmdel Road and crashed his sports car into a tree in a residential backyard on Dante's Way, in the early hours of August 22.
Isoldi has been served with a criminal complaint for possession of two glass vials of suspected cocaine, found in the pocket of his shorts the night of the accident. He was also charged with four motor vehicle summonses, including drunk driving. His blood alcohol content was .25%, according to medical records obtained by Holmdel Police through a municipal court order.
A week after the accident, Isoldi remained in critical condition at the hospital. Since then, the hospital has not released information about his condition.
At 1:30 a.m. on that Wednesday, Isoldi was found severely injured and unconscious, pinned between his 2012 Aston Martin DBS and a tree. Holmdel Police officer John O. Maguire Jr. arrived first of several officers on the scene in response to a 911 call by a man who heard the crash.
Holmdel First Aid, Holmdel Fire & Rescue #2 and MONOC paramedics helped extract Isoldi from the crumpled car and search the darkness with a thermal imaging camera for passengers (There were none.) Isoldi's injuries were so traumatic that he was transported to Bayshore Community Hospital's helipad where he was airlifted to RWJ by Northstar helicopter that arrived an hour later.
The two glass vials of a white powdery substance found in his pocket has been seized by police, with the car, as evidence.
Isoldi was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, an indictable offense; driving under the influence, reckless driving, failure to drive within a single lane and operating a motor vehicle in possession of drugs.
