Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Tragedy Strikes as Two Young Brothers Killed in Car Chase Accident in San Diego

San Diego, CA – In a devastating incident, two young brothers, Malikai and Mason Orozco-Romero, aged 8 and 4 respectively, lost their lives when a car being pursued by the police crashed into their family’s vehicle. The incident, which occurred on December 8th on an off-ramp at Interstate 405, has left the community mourning the loss of these innocent lives.

Angel Velazquez Salgado, 20, the alleged driver of the BMW being chased by the police, now faces multiple charges, including two counts of murder, gross vehicular manslaughter, hit and run, felony evading, and driving without a license. According to reports, Salgado pleaded not guilty to these charges during his court appearance on Wednesday.

The San Diego Union-Tribune, ABC 10, and CBS8 have all reported on the tragic accident. Witnesses claim that Salgado was driving at an extremely high speed, reaching around 100 miles per hour, when he collided with the Honda containing the Orozco-Romero family. The impact caused the Honda to crash into a tree and burst into flames.

Heartbreakingly, the boys’ mother, Victoria, also suffered critical injuries in the crash. This devastating incident compounds the family’s grief, as the boys’ father had already passed away last year. A GoFundMe campaign was created by Malikai’s godmother, Brittany Phommavong, to help support the family during this unimaginable time. The campaign has already raised over $20,000, a testament to the community’s compassion and desire to help.

Phommavong expressed her gratitude for the outpouring of love and support, stating, “Everyone who knows these kids knows no matter what they were going through, they always carried a beautiful smile on their face. This tragedy isn’t fair, and I’m really lost for words.”

As the community mourns the loss of these young lives, questions arise about the circumstances surrounding the police pursuit and the need for stricter regulations to prevent such accidents in the future. The investigation into the incident is ongoing, and authorities are working to determine the appropriate course of action.

This heartbreaking incident serves as a stark reminder of the fragility of life and the importance of community support in times of tragedy. The memories of Malikai and Mason Orozco-Romero will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved them.
