Yorba Linda: Supporters push to build skatepark in honor of teen

Skatepark For Logan

UPDATE (THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 2014): A petition to tell the Yorba Linda City Council to build a skatepark in Yorba Linda in honor of Logan Wells has more than 15,000 signatures in its first week.

ORIGINAL POST (MONDAY, MARCH 24, 2014): Friends, family and supporters have set up a memorial in Yorba Linda for a teenage skateboarder who was killed riding on Bastanchury Road there on Sunday morning.

Authorities say a 61-year-old driver struck the skateboarder, identified as Logan Wells, 16.

The site of the crash, an upscale residential neighborhood at Bastanchury Road and Secretariat Way known for its mansions and horse trails, now has a memorial full of Hawaiian shirts, hats and skateboards with messages written in chalk.

A nearby turn signal pole has also been emblazoned with messages of support, including a drawing of a skateboard symbolizing the fallen skateboarder on the pole’s pedestrian signal.
