The Story

A burglary in Yucaipa turned into a highway chase that caused the death of an innocent Upland man early Sunday morning, April 15, 2007. The Yucaipa Sheriff Station responded to the burglary and were in pursuit of a driver of a 2007 Dodge Charger who was fleeing the scene of an attempted burglary. The chase began on surface streets at 12th Street and Avenue D in Yucaipa and ended on Interstate 10 at Ford Street. The Charger, which had entered the freeway headed west in the eastbound lanes, crashed head-on into a 1999 Honda Civic killing 20-year-old Steven Aveles of Upland, a passenger in the Honda, and critically injuring the driver, whose name was withheld. The driver of the Civic, a 20-year-old La Puente man, was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center, according to the California Highway Patrol.


A son is honored: Steven Anthony Aveles

RoseMarie writes on June 16, 2007: "Today was the day that Cal Trans honors me with a sign for Adopting a Highway for my Son Steven. (My 3rd son Joshua is wearing a white tank. My older son Anthony had an Elevator Mechanic class this morning.)"

Also, at last Sunday's Dodger game, they displayed Steven's name on the bill board. It turned out beautiful.

"My son Steven worked for UPS Ontario, CA teamsters. This local has their own park, very nice one at that. On August 18 we will have a big BBQ,Live Bands and Bike/Car show the theme will be: Need to Change Police Chases and its Law: Immunity/Liability Justice/Rights for the innocent Killed/Injured" something to this effect..........
