Vishwalee Gummakonda charged with DUI second-degree death by auto by Middlesex Prosecutor Andrew Carey

Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Chief Thomas Bryan of the Edison Police Department said an Edison man has been charged with causing the death of a motorcyclist.
Vishwalee Gummakonda, 25, of  Edison, was charged with the second-degree crime of death by auto and driving while intoxicated.
Matthew Muklewicz, of North Brunswick, was pronounced dead at the scene just past midnight last night after his 2015 Honda Shadow Motorcycle was struck while stopped at a traffic light.
The crash is being investigated by Detective Joseph Bench of the Edison Police Department and Detective Donald Heck of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.

During the investigation, it was determined that Muklewicz was stopped at a light on the corner of Route 1 and Plainfield Avenue. Gummakonda, who driving a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fa Wagon, was traveling on Route 1South and rear-ended the motorcycle.

The investigation is active and is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Joseph Bench of the Edison Police Department at (732) 248-7400 or Detective Heck of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-8842.

As is the case with all criminal defendants, the charges against Gummakonda are merely accusations and he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
