Lake Elsinore motorcyclist killed in crash was veteran, UPS employee


PERRIS, CA – A Lake Elsinore motorcyclist who was killed last week when a motorist drove in front of him on State Route 74 was identified by the coroner this weekend as 44-year-old Jason Frost.

According to a GoFundMe post for Frost’s family, he was a Navy veteran who was on his way home from his job at UPS when the crash occurred.


On May 2 at approximately 9:17 p.m., Frost was driving westbound on SR-74 on a Honda CBF near Betty Road in unincorporated Perris. According to the California Highway Patrol, he was traveling at an undetermined speed and had no signal or stop sign.

A 52-year-old Hesperia woman behind the wheel of a Toyota Highlander was located on Betty Road near SR-74. She ran a stop sign at the T-intersection and complied, but apparently did not see the motorcyclist and drove onto the highway in front of him, the CHP reported.

Frost was unable to stop his bike in time and crashed into the SUV. He was sent away and died on the spot. According to the CHP, he was wearing a helmet.

The woman and her 53-year-old male passenger were not injured, the CHP said.

Alcohol and/or drugs are not suspected to be crash factors, and no arrests have been made, but charges may be pending as the investigation continues, CHP Officer Mike Lassig said.

“Jason was a beloved son, brother, uncle, friend, colleague and a proud Navy veteran who touched many lives,” the GoFundMe post said. ‘His tragic death comes not only too late, but also unexpectedly.

“Several friends and family have asked how they can help, so we started this GoFundMe to help with unexpected expenses that haven’t yet been covered. The balance of the money will be donated to a charity that supports veterans in the name of Jason,” the post continued. .

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call the CHP Temecula Area office at 951-466-4300.
