Santiago Canyon area of Orange County was the scene of a devastating head-on collision between two motorcycles that left four people dead.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reports that the fatal motorcycle accident occurred around 4:30 p.m on Sunday July 7, approximately a quarter of a mile south of Hicks Haul Road in the hills south of Irvine Lake and northeast of Lake Forest.
