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.

Orange County has loosened requirements for carrying concealed weapons in public following a pro-gun ruling last week by a federal appeals court, officials said Thursday. A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2 to 1 that California counties may no longer require residents who want to carry concealed firearms to demonstrate special, individualized needs, such as death threats. The court majority said law-abiding residents have a 2nd Amendment right to bear a gun in public.

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.
