 Jacob Rodriguez wrong-way fatal crash Interstate 15 Freeway in RainbowWrong-Way Driver Who Died ID’d; Crash Also Killed Jessica Neumeyer

RAINBOW — A 23-year-old man who killed himself and another driver in a wrong-way crash on the Interstate 15 Freeway has been identified as Jacob Rodriguez of Lake Elsinore.

The young man was driving a white Hyundai Elantra in the wrong direction of the southbound lanes of Interstate 15 on Oct. 26 when he collided with a gray Honda Civic.

The two vehicles collided about 11:15 p.m.  Jessica Neumeyer of Murrieta was driving the Honda. She died of her injuries at the scene.

Police say the man’s Hyundai entered the I-15 Freeway at Deer Springs Road and began traveling north in the southbound lanes. The CHP was notified about the wrong-way driver and started a traffic break near state Route 76, but they were unable to stop him before the collision took place.

The cars collided head-on at high speed near Rainbow Valley Boulevard.

Rodriguez was transported by ambulance to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido. He later died of his injuries at 4:51 a.m. Oct. 27.

The crash is under investigation. Police suspect alcohol and or other drugs were involved.


Police are reviewing the evidence and any witness statements, but it appears that Rodriguez is at fault for the collision.  The investigation will consist of looking at measurements, going over evidence left by the vehicle such as point of impact, final resting positions of the vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
