A Wayne man has been indicted for his role in a fatal Paterson crash, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Asante Cugliari, 23-year-old, was indicted by a Passaic County grand jury on two counts of death by auto, and strict liability vehicular homicide.

On August 9, 2020, Cugliari rammed his 2013 Hyundai Genesis into a 2008 Dodge Charger driven by 58-year-old Gustavo Marte of Paterson at the intersection of 9th Avenue and East 26th Street, according to authorities.

Marte was instantly killed in the T-bone crash.

Cugliari will face decades in prison if convicted on the charges.
