Randal Miller and his longtime companion, Barbara Lane, were practically inseparable. The Lancaster couple spent long summer days boating and water skiing at Pyramid Lake. They shared cooking, laundry and cleaning chores around their small ranch house. They jointly cared for their daughter, Alisha, 5, and Lane's son, Wyatt, 10. They talked about culminating their 10-year relationship in marriage later this year.

Four people, two of them children, were killed when their car smashed into another vehicle and plunged off an embankment along the rain-slicked Antelope Valley Freeway Sunday afternoon. The accident shut down the freeway for several hours, clogging post-holiday traffic along an important high desert artery. Those killed were a 7-year-old girl, a 10-year-old boy, a man in his 30s and a woman in her mid-20s.

Four people, two of them children, were killed Sunday afternoon when their car smashed into another vehicle in Palmdale and plunged off an embankment on the rain-slickened Antelope Valley Freeway. Among the dead were a 7-year-old girl, a 10-year-old boy, a man in his 30s and a woman in her mid-20s. Authorities believe that they were all members of the same family, but declined to identify them Sunday night because relatives had not been told of their deaths.

Caltrans crews forced to halt rock-blasting Tuesday after they found an apparent bobcat den will have to delay work until spring because of a possibly endangered plant growing at the site of a road-widening project along the Antelope Valley Freeway in Agua Dulce. The plants found near the $31-million project could be lily, wild onion, monardilla, buckwheat or rabbit brush, all native to the area, but Caltrans environmentalists say they won't know for sure until they bloom in spring.

Caltrans crews preparing to set off explosives along a section of the Antelope Valley Freeway were stopped in their tracks Tuesday morning when workers discovered what appeared to be a bobcat den in the mountainside along the highway. The rock blasting is part of a $31-million road-widening project, which includes construction of a carpool lane between Agua Dulce Canyon and Escondido Canyon roads in the Santa Clarita Valley.

After battling brush fires for four days, local fire agencies enjoyed a relatively quiet Fourth of July. A 400-acre brush fire that threatened homes and created massive traffic jams on the Antelope Valley and Golden State freeways Thursday afternoon was extinguished by early Friday morning, county fire officials said. In the Angeles National Forest, a persistent blaze sparked near Azusa on Tuesday by a homeowner using a brush-clearing device continued to burn.

Homeowners in Hawaiian shirts and sheriff's deputies in uniform, shoveling a last-ditch barrier and grabbing hoses to help firefighters, beat back a brush fire Thursday that threatened a housing development and snarled holiday traffic for hours by closing the Antelope Valley Freeway. "You just jump in and help out, because these guys have their hands full," said Jerry Cormier, 39, clad in a sports shirt and shorts and leaning on a shovel beside a "hot spot."

Residents of Santa Clarita, especially those living in the Saugus area, will be getting another badly needed access road to the Antelope Valley Freeway next month, Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich's office announced Tuesday. A one-mile stretch of road connecting Plum Canyon Road to Whites Canyon Road will open May 5, joining Bouquet Canyon Road--one of the city's busiest thoroughfares--to the freeway.
