The state Department of Motor Vehicles hopes to have more information in upcoming days about the driver's license status of the teenager who was behind the wheel in a fiery Newport Beach crash that killed him and four other young passengers. The DMV said it will audit the driver's license application filed by Abdulrahman Alyahyan, 17, of Irvine. He did not have even a learner's permit when his Infiniti sedan crashed May 27 on Jamboree Road. But Alyahyan was cited April 20 for violating terms of a provisional license.

A year after the city began an expansion of Jamboree Road to eight lanes from six, the project remains unfinished because of the ongoing strike by heavy-equipment operators. With no indication of when the strike will end, city officials say they have done their best to shield the $7-million project from water damage when the rainy season begins. The project was delayed for several months last winter because of heavy rains.

Grief and shock spread across Irvine on Tuesday as news spread about the deaths. All five teenagers were riding in a car that crashed into a tree and was torn apart in Newport Beach on Memorial Day. "There are simply no words to convey the sorrow felt by our students and staff, nor are there answers sufficient to explain why five vibrant teenagers who were with us on Friday are gone today," Irvine Unified School District Supt.

The 10-month-old Jamboree Road widening project is three months behind schedule, in part because of a strike by heavy-equipment operators, city officials said this week. Installation of curbs and gutters for the $7-million project was delayed by heavy winter rains. That part of the job was completed two weeks ago, city engineers said, but the end of the project is still at least another month away.

Backbay Drive will be closed to all traffic for two to three weeks as workers attempt to clear debris from the recent storms and make repairs. The three-mile road along the ecological reserve between Jamboree Road and Eastbluff Drive suffered major flood damage and was the sight of several mudslides, police said.

A new hope for commuters struggling with traffic congestion on the Costa Mesa Freeway was unveiled by city and county officials Thursday with fanfare and a dash of controversy.

The driver of a car that was ripped in half in a violent Newport Beach crash that left five teens dead was described by high school friends Tuesday as an upbeat, happy person who went out of his way to compliment strangers. As word of the crash and names of those believed to be involved spread, classmates of the Irvine High School student and the other teens riding in the Infiniti gathered Tuesday at the scene on Jamboree Road, not far from the city's police station. Police said excessive speed was a contributing factor in the crash, which occurred only a mile from where TapouT founder Charles Lewis was killed in 2009 in a high-speed collision.

In a city with a grim history of high-profile car wrecks, even veteran police and firefighters seemed stunned by the death toll on Jamboree Road. They called the Memorial Day wreck in Newport Beach the single worst solo-car crash in memory. They groped, and failed, to come up with a worse one. The violent collision, just down the road from Fashion Island and the Newport Beach police station, killed five teenagers from neighboring Irvine, scattering debris and bodies across the pavement.
