SDSU’s Jasmine Madarang Mourned as I-8 Victim Missing After Tailgate Party

On social media, friends and family were mourning the death of Jasmine Madarang, the San Diego State University student fatally struck by a vehicle while apparently trying to cross Interstate 8 in Mission Valley on foot.

The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the woman Monday as 20-year-old Jasmine Madarang. She was last spotted at the Kappa Alpha Theta fraternity tailgating party before the SDSU vs. Stanford football game, her aunt said on Facebook.

Just before 8 p.m. Saturday, a woman was reportedly witnessed to have entered westbound Interstate 8 on foot from the north shoulder in an attempt to cross the freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Several lanes were shut down Sunday as CHP investigated.

In a Facebook post on behalf of the Madarang family, Margarita Melinda said a GoFundMe account was being set up.

Jasmine Madarang was a member of SDSU’s Delta Zeta Sorority, students told NBC 7. San Diego State University Police responded immediately and was on the scene.

Hours before, family members began looking for Madarang, who had gone missing.

Madarang was a junior who had started classes in late August and was pursuing her BA in Mechanical Engineering.
