LEE COUNTY, Fla. - A Cape Coral man is behind bars this afternoon accused in a crash that killed two people back in February. Jason Jones made a first appearance in Lee County court this morning.
Cape Coral police arrested Jones Wednesday. Jones faces two counts vehicular homicide and two counts of possessing a controlled substance for having several oxycodone pills and illegal steroids on him. Today, a judge set bond at $110,000.
According to Cape Coral police, the 36-year-old and his 8-year-old son were in their Hummer when, for some reason, Jones started swerving on and off the road. He ultimately collided with a Toyota minivan, killing Edward Mildner and Joanne Grimes. Jones and his son were seriously injured in the crash.
