Kokomo — A 17-year-old Northwestern High School student was killed after the car he was driving collided with a mail truck at Davis and Smith roads Wednesday evening.

Kokomo police said Kalin D. Storie was initially airlifted to Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne for treatment after the 5:09 p.m. crash and died late Wednesday as a result of his injuries.

Capt. Brian Thompson said Storie was driving east on Smith Road in a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire and collided with a GMC mail truck traveling south on Davis Road. The driver of the truck was not seriously injured. A preliminary report showed that Storie initially stopped at the stop sign then continued through the intersection into the path of the truck.
