A 17-year-old Yorba Linda boy riding a moped was killed when he was struck broadside by a van traveling southbound on Yorba Ranch Road in Yorba Linda, Brea police said. Greg Anthony Villobos was crossing Yorba Ranch Road eastbound at Jacaranda Lane when he was struck by a van driven by Robert Ray Goodale, 20, also of Yorba Linda, Lt. Bill Lentini said. Goodale was booked on suspicion of manslaughter but released pending further investigation, Lentini said.
