   A 58-year-old Woodbridge man was killed Wednesday afternoon after the 1998 Chevy Camaro he was driving crossed over the centerline on Route 535 and struck the guardrail.
   The victim, whose name is being withheld until the family can be notified, is believed to have suffered a medical problem while driving, police said.
   According to police, the man was traveling along the southbound lanes of Route 535 around 2 p.m. While traveling under the overpass for the N.J. Turnpike, the victim’s vehicle crossed over into the northbound lanes before striking the guardrail.
   Police said witnesses to the accident said the Camaro was seen swerving prior to striking the rail.
   Traffic was slowed in the area, but lanes were not closed, police said.
   Responding officers found the victim unresponsive with no pulse, police said. Officers and members of the Monmouth Junction First Aid Squad performed CPR on the victim. He was transported to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, where he was pronounced dead at 3 p.m., police said.
   Wednesday’s fatal accident was the second in the township this year.
