Middlesex County officials reported that a Sayreville man has been sentenced to prison for causing a fatal motorcycle crash that killed his passenger on Route 35 North in Old Bridge Township.

An investigation conducted by Officer Henry Penley of the Old Bridge Police Department and Detective Erik Larsen of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined that on July 16, 2020, at approximately 11:50 P.M., Jack Piatek, 29, of Sayreville, was operating a motorcycle while under the influence of alcohol when he lost control ejecting both him and his passenger, Ms. Jessica Vinsko, 36, of South Amboy, off the motorcycle.

Ms. Vinsko was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Piatek was subsequently charged with multiple offenses and later pleaded guilty to second-degree Vehicular Homicide and Driving While Intoxicated.
