(June 4, 2012) -- The Orange County Coroner's office has identified the person killed on Friday night (June 1) on Spring St./Stevely Ave. (El Dorado Park area) as Brian Beato, age 15.

LBReport.com has learned that Mr. Beato, who would have turned 16 in July, was a much admired member of the Millikan High School baseball team. Word of his passing spread over the weekend on a Facebook page maintained by a team member.

By midday Sunday (June 3) a grassroots memorial was visible at the scene.






We're told that Millikan High baseball team members spent time with Brian's family on Saturday, then went to the accident site and held a candlelight vigil (photo below via video on Facebook.

At midday Sunday, people stopped by to leave heartfelt messages. [Caution: don't attempt to park or stop your car on Spring St. at that location. The site is only accessible by parking in the residential neighborhood immediately to the north of Spring St. and using a pedestrian stairway to Spring St.]



[The following has been significantly updated by subsequent LBPD information here.] As previously reported by LBReport.com, an LBPD release on Saturday June 2 stated that shortly after 9:30 p.m. on Friday June 1, officers responded to the location and their preliminary investigation indicated that two male pedestrians allegedly ran across Spring Street's eastbound traffic near Stevely Ave. One pedestrian stopped on the center divider but the other (who we now know was Mr. Beato) continued running and was struck by a westbound vehicle. The OC Coroner's office indicates he was taken to Los Alamitos Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries shortly thereafter.

The accident occurred along a portion of Spring St. where westbound traffic has just crested a bridge over Coyote Creek and heads toward Studebaker Rd. El Dorado Park is across a center median on the south side of Spring St...and a residential neighborhood is on the north side of Spring St. accessible via staircases, including one at Stevely Ave.


LBReport.com sends our sincere condolences to Brian's family, his teammates and many friends. We'll provide information on arrangements as we receive them.
