A 27-year-old Hengoed man has been killed after the van he was driving was in a crash with an articulated car transporter lorry.
The man, who has not been named, was driving along the B4265 in St Athan, Vale of Glamorgan, on Friday when the accident happened at 12.50pm.
The road was closed off by South Wales Police as they investigated.
