Middlesex grand jury indicts North Brunswick officer for crash death A Middlesex County grand jury today indicted a 40-year-old North Brunswick police lieutenant on a charge of vehicular homicide for the death of a fellow officer in a high-speed crash that occurred when they took a ride in high-powered sports car while on duty in August. The grand jury charged Lt. Keith Buckley was driving at a speed of at least 94 mph in a 45 mph zone when he lost control of a rented 2006 Dodge Viper convertible and slammed into a guardrail and utility pole, killing Lt. Christopher Zerby, a 41-year-old father of two young sons. Buckley, an 18-year veteran who headed North Brunswick's 84-member patrol division, faces a prison term of five to 10 years if convicted. A not-guilty plea was entered on his behalf when he initially was charged Sept. 5. Zerby's attorney, Robert Gluck, previously said his client was devestated by the crash. The defense attorney, a former Middlesex County prosecutor, called the crash ''an accident and not a crime.''
