A 19-year-old Kent man died in a single-vehicle crash Tuesday afternoon in SeaTac.

Andrew D. Long, was driving a 2012 Mitsubishi Fuso, a commercial truck, at about 3:08 p.m. southbound on State Route 509 exiting to South 188th Street when he lost control, according to a State Patrol media release.
