Jalen Mathis, of Ivanhoe, was thrown from the Ford Focus he was driving and pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers say speed was a factor in the wreck.
After Mathis' car hit the truck, which was stopped at a stop sign preparing to cross N.C. 411, the tractor-trailer collided with a third vehicle, which was also crossing N.C. 411 in the opposite direction.
The drivers of the tractor-trailer and the third vehicle were not seriously hurt.
No charges are expected.
