Reyes-Contereras was pronounced dead at a local hospital about an hour after the crash, police said.
Police did not say if the 45-year-old driver of the tractor trailer suffered any injuries. The transport truck passed a brake-and-safety inspection at the scene, police said.
There is no criminality suspected at this time, according to police.
