LANCASTER MAN KILLED IN COLLISION AT INTERSECTION.
A 33-year-old man died Tuesday after the car he was driving collided with a minivan at Avenue M and 20th Street East, sheriff's officials said.
Roger Stinett of Lancaster, who was driving a 1990 Geo Prizm, was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after after the 2:30 p.m. collision, officials said.
``He was on his way to work,'' Deputy Dave Miklos said. ``He had his lunch box in the car.''
Deputies said they did not know where Stinett worked.
Officials said that Nida Wanis, 33, of Palmdale was traveling westbound on Avenue M in a 1986 Mazda MPV, on his way home from Lake Los Angeles, and Stinett was making a left from southbound 20th Street East onto Avenue M.
The intersection is controlled by a traffic signal.
``It's still (unclear) who's at fault,'' said Miklos. ``The driver of the van said he had a solid green.''
Wanis was airlifted to Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills, where a report on his condition was not immediately available.
