A man was killed in a two-vehicle crash on state Highway 6 in Santa Fe on Friday morning, the Santa Fe Police Department said.

Ruben Ray Ybarra, 51, of Santa Fe, died at the scene of the crash, police said.

The crash happened around 5:30 a.m. near the intersection of state Highway 6 and the Avenue I, according to the police department.

A Ford F-150 traveling west on state Highway 6 struck Ybarra's Toyota Scion as he pulled south onto the highway from Avenue I, police said

Ybarra may not have stopped at a stop sign before pulling out onto the highway, police said.

The crash forced both vehicles into a ditch, police said. Ybarra was declared dead at the scene, they said, adding that the driver of the F-150 was uninjured.

The part of state Highway 6 where the crash happened was closed for hours as police continued to investigate the crash and collect evidence.
