Boyfriend accused of intentionally causing rollover accident that killed girlfriend
A fatal rollover accident that happened at around 7:27 p.m. on June 27, 2015 along Interstate 94 in Summit, Wisconsin and resulted in the death of 20-year-old Crystal Matusek was deemed to have been intentionally caused by Matusek’s boyfriend, Milwaukee resident Jared Weber.
According to criminal complaints, a dashcam revealed that Weber and Matusek were arguing before the accident. Weber shouted, “I will crash this car,” before witnesses saw the vehicle veer sharply across two lanes of traffic, jump the highway divider, flip in midair, land on its roof in the midst of oncoming traffic, roll one more time, and finally come to rest on the shoulder of the eastbound lanes. The accident happened as the couple was driving back to Weber’s mother’s house in Poynette from a car show in Michigan.
Waukesha County Circuit Judge Lee Dreyfus charged Weber with first-degree reckless homicide on Tuesday, October 6 and issued a warrant for his arrest on the same day.
