A 51-year-old mini-van driver from Santa Rosa was killed Wednesday night in a collision with a truck at the intersection of Tubbs Lane and Highway 128 outside Calistoga, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported at about 8:30 p.m. The CHP did not identify the deceased motorist, who died at the scene.

The CHP said a large water transport truck driven by Middletown resident Misael Vasquez-Rodriguez, 35, was heading northbound on Highway 128. For unknown reasons, the mini-van driver, who was westbound on Tubbs Lane, failed to stop at a stop sign.

The truck driver was taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital with major injuries, the CHP said. 

The roadway was closed for three hours, officials said.
