SYLMAR (CBS) — A 27-year-old man killed in a crash with a big rig truck in Sylmar was identified Sunday by the coroner’s office.

Christian M. Medina of Sylmar drove his car into the back of a 53-foot big rig trailer in the 14400 block of Foothill Boulevard late Saturday afternoon, Coroner’s Investigator Jerry McKibben said.
