The department releases a statement saying, “Mike is described as a loyal, dedicated, hardworking employee. Mike is probably best known for his charismatic personality and his strong desire to train and mentor others by imparting his vast knowledge and many years of experience to the younger and less experienced. Mike will be missed dearly by all.”

The cause of the crash is under investigation by the Costa Mesa and Newport Beach police departments.
