A 17-year-old driver involved in a collision that killed a motorcyclist over the weekend in Orange County did not have a driver's license or a learner's permit, police said Tuesday. Police and firefighters responded to the collision at 9:33 p.m. Saturday at 3151 Harbor Blvd. in Costa Mesa. The motorcyclist was identified as Gregory McNally, 30, of Costa Mesa, according to the Orange County coroner's office. The 17-year-old Costa Mesa girl, who was driving a van, sustained injuries and was taken to a hospital, according to police.

In a drive to go cashless, construction crews have begun to remove the old-school tollbooths planted along Orange County's vast network of toll lanes. A metal-and-glass tollbooth on the San Joaquin Hills toll road, which winds along coastal Orange County, was symbolically plucked from the highway's toll plaza Thursday, the first step in switching the pay-to-drive highway to a cashless system. Come May, at a specific date still to be determined, traffic on all Orange County toll roads will be routed through automated lanes, where customers can make payments with the existing FasTrak transponders or the new ExpressAccounts, which can be pre-paid, hooked to a credit card or generate monthly bills that are mailed to motorists.

The Orange County clerk-recorder will open its doors Saturday because of the demand for same-sex wedding licenses.  Orange County may be the closest place for Los Angeles-area residents to get a marriage license before Monday. Los Angeles County issued only one same-sex marriage license on Friday -- to two plaintiffs who filed the federal lawsuit that eventually struck down Proposition 8.  At least one gay couple were upset that L.A. County wouldn't reopen its offices until Monday.  But in Orange County, Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen said his offices in Santa Ana, Fullerton and Laguna Hills would be open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. "We're listening to what our customers tell us they want," Nguyen said.
