KENNEWICK, Wash. - A 31-year-old Mabton man was killed Wednesday night when his car struck a semi-truck south of Kennewick, the Washington State Patrol reports.
They say the man, Alejandro Diaz del Los Angeles, was driving east on State Route 14, about 22 miles south of Kennewick when his 2005 Chevrolet Malibu crossed the centerline and collided with a westbound tractor trailer.
The truck driver, Belinda C. Blacketer, 48, of Spirit Lake, Idaho, was not injured, according to the patrol.
Cause of the crash remains under investigation.
SR 14 was shut down for several hours overnight, but has since reopened.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash, which destroyed both vehicles, the patrol said.
