Off-duty Garden Grove police officer killed in crash



An off-duty Garden Grove police officer heading home from work was killed in Anaheim in a motor vehicle crash.

Cpl. Han Cho was killed Monday after his motorcycle and a car collided near Euclid Street and Glenoaks Avenue, Sgt. Jon McClintock, Anaheim Police Department spokesperson, said. Officers responded to the crash just after 3 p.m., he added.

Both Cho and the other driver were taken to a hospital, where Cho died, McClintock said.

The other driver was trapped inside the car and had to be extricated. He suffered minor to moderate injuries.

Cho was with the Police Department for 28 years and was assigned to the Neighborhood Traffic Unit.

The Garden Grove Police Assn. will be coordinating with Cho’s family about memorial arrangements and donations, the Police Department posted on social media.

The cause of the collision is under investigation, McClintock said, but added that driving under the influence was not a factor.
