A 29-year-old man was killed after his car collided with a semi-truck in Coral Springs.

The crash happened along Turtle Creek Drive and State Road 7 about 4 a.m. Monday.

The driver of the semi-truck told police he was making a right-hand turn on Turtle Creek Drive when he heard a thump toward the back of his truck. He said he checked both mirrors and decided to continue to his next stop when he saw nothing.

Police said it was when the driver of the semi-truck arrived at his next stop that he saw the damage and returned to the intersection.

Police identified the driver killed in the crash as Christopher Conner, 29, of Fort Lauderdale.

It's unclear if charges will be filed.
