An Alabama man holding a traffic control sign in a construction work zone Monday was struck and killed, according to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.

Brandon F. Barber, 33, of Prattville, was killed when a 2021 Chevrolet Traverse driven by 29-year-old Dylan Ryan Green of Jemison “failed to yield to the traffic control sign Barber was holding within a construction zone.”

The single-vehicle wreck happened at about 9:15 a.m. on Alabama 191, about two miles south of Jemison.

Barber was taken to a hospital in Clanton, where he was pronounced dead.

ALEA said Troopers continue to investigate the incident.
