Officials pronounced Wayda dead at the scene, police said.

An autopsy conducted Sunday by the Middlesex County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled that the death was a result of blunt force trauma during the accident, police said.

Police believe that the Infiniti left the shoulder of the roadway, struck a grassy hill and became airborne before landing on its roof.

There were no other occupants in the vehicle, police said.

Police said that the crash closed Cranbury-South River Road for two hours as investigators pieced the scene together.

In addition to South Brunswick Police, Cranbury and Monroe Police, Cranbury First Aid Squad, Cranbury Volunteer Fire Company, Robert Wood Johnson University paramedics and the Middlesex County Medical Examiner’s office responded to the scene, police said.  

South Brunswick Police are still investigating to find out what made Wayda go off the roadway.
