Addison Villa (13291)

12/6/2015: Addison Villa was killed when the 2000 Honda Accord he was in hit a Toyota Camry, then crashed into an electrical pole and concrete wall while being chased by the CHP in Garden Grove. A CHP tried to stop the Honda for allegedly speeding on the 5 freeway just south of the 22 freeway at around 1:30 a.m. The ensuing chase reportedly lasted a few minutes before the Honda crashed near the Chapman Avenue off-ramp. The Honda burst into flames, and a CHP sergeant and Garden Grove police officer used a fire extinguisher and save the driver and two passengers, but the flames got too hot to rescue Villa, the third passenger. Villa was pronounced dead at the scene. Passengers Adilene Chavira, 19, and Saul Chavira, 22, were hospitalized with injuries. Driver Dagoberto Orepeza, 29, was taken to Long Beach Memorial Hospital. Orepaza was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and felony evading.
