SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ (MIDDLESEX)–The South Brunswick Police Department announced yesterday that motor vehicle tickets have been issued in connection to the July 11, 2022, fatal motorcycle crash on Georges Road. Investigators determined that at 3:20 P.M   Maheshkum Kuniyil, 48, of Dayton was driving a 2019 Honda Odyssey on Summerfield Boulevard and came to a stop at the Georges Road intersection. Mr. Kuniyil then attempted to make a left onto Georges Road and collided with a 1998 Harley Davidson motorcycle being driven by Christopher Acs, 47, of Jamesburg which was headed north on Georges Road.  Mr. Acs died at the scene of the crash.

He was issued two motor vehicle summonses; one for failure to yield right of way at an intersection and one for obstructing the passage of other vehicles. Both motor vehicle tickets will be heard in Municipal Court.

The investigation was conducted by Patrolman First-Class Jason Gassman of the South Brunswick Police Department Traffic Safety Bureau in conjunction with Detective Jonathan Berman of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.
