Duane Peters’ son killed in car crash

Reports have come in that Duane Peters’ son has been killed in a car crash. This was posted on the DLXSF forum yesterday:

“A 20-year-old Orange resident died in a traffic accident Friday night, when a driver making a left turn struck the man’s car and sent it into a light pole, authorities said.

Chess Peters was driving a Toyota Corolla on Bolsa Chica Road. As he approached Loyola Ave, the 78-year-old driver of a Mercury sedan turned left into the intersection, striking Peters’ car. The Toyota veered off the road and collided with a light pole.

Peters was pronounced dead at the scene. Westminster police are investigating the collision.

“(Peters’) speed may be an associated factor in this collision,” according to a release from police.”

Our thoughts go out to Duane and his family.

R.I.P. Chess
