A 21-year-old man was killed Monday evening in a collision with a box truck on West Main Street in Santa Maria, according to Santa Maria police.

Sgt. Jesus Valle said emergency personnel were dispatched at 6:45 p.m. to West Main Street and Kathleen Court, a block west of North Blosser Road.

“A 2009 Cadillac CTS four-door was traveling westbound on Main Street and collided into a large white box truck that was pulling out onto Main Street from Kathleen Court,” he said.

The driver and sole occupant of the Cadillac was declared dead at the scene, Valle said, adding that his identity was being withheld pending notification of relatives.

No other injuries were reported.

Main Street was shut down between Hansen Way and Blosser Road after the crash, and was expected to remain closed for several hours, Valle said.

Police are investigating the wreck.
