A 41-year-old man died Tuesday after his pickup rammed a semitrailer truck in front of him on Santiago Canyon Road, several miles from a winding stretch where another motorist was killed last week, authorities said. Michael Stanley Sammons, the driver of a Ford Ranger pickup, apparently was speeding when he slammed into the back of a truck hauling dirt, according to a preliminary police investigation of the crash. "It's bizarre," Roy Griffith, an Orange police investigator, said.

It's a long, winding and often lovely road running from Orange east and south to Lake Forest and Rancho Santa Margarita. But Santiago Canyon Road can also be deadly. Impatient drivers are better off taking their lead feet elsewhere. Because it is so narrow, one lane in each direction and a bit of pavement to pull over, the road demands a motorist go no faster than the driver ahead. Slower is better in terms of scenery and nerves.

A portion of Santiago Canyon Road was expected to remain closed through the night Wednesday as crews worked to restore power lines blown down by high winds. About 20 motorists were stopped for 45 minutes after the two lines went down about 6:50 p.m., a quarter-mile east of Jamboree Road. The vehicles were eventually backed out and redirected. There were reports of a power outage, Orange Police Department Lt. Brad Davis said, but it was unclear how widespread it was. -- -- David Haldane

The U.S. Geological Survey plans to install webcams in Orange County's Santiago Creek and the Malibu Canyon area to monitor flooding and debris flows. A camera positioned at Santiago Canyon Road and Modjeska Canyon Road -- at the bridge where Santiago Canyon Road crosses Santiago Creek -- will be operating 24 hours a day.

An overflow crowd gathered Tuesday as the Orange City Council began considering an Irvine Co. proposal to build nearly 4,000 homes in the city's rural eastern canyons, a project that would be one of the county's last major developments. The council was not expected to vote on the project Tuesday, instead hearing from supporters and opponents of the project. Tammy Warren supports the plan. "I would love to see all of the open space in Orange County remain," she told the council.
