A 28-year-old Anaheim man died early Saturday after he tried to cross a busy street and ran into the path of an oncoming taxicab, Orange County sheriff's officials said. About 11:40 p.m. Friday, the victim apparently was cutting across Katella Avenue near Dale Avenue and ran in front of the cab, Sheriff's Lt. Lynn Nehring said. The taxi driver swerved to the right and tried to stop, but was not able to avoid the collision, Nehring said.
