Jessica Neumeyer, 20, Victim in Wrong-Way Crash
California Highway Patrol officials have come to the conclusion that 23-year-old Lake Elsinore man had been traveling the wrong way in a white Hyundai headed northbound in southbound lanes at a high rate of speed. He eventually struck a sedan driven by Jessica Neumeyer, 20, head-on.
The collision tragically left Neumeyer with fatal injuries as she was sadly pronounced at the scene upon the arrival of paramedics.
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old man sustained grave injuries for which he was rushed to Palomar Hospital. He later died of his injuries and was pronounced dead at 4:51 a.m.
There is suspicion that the 23-year-old man may have been under the influence but has not been confirmed at this time while CHP-Temecula is the agency handling the investigation.
