BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) - A 21-year-old Stapleton man is dead after his four-wheeler collided with a pickup truck early Monday.

Alabama State Troopers identify the man as Steven C. Byrd and they say he died after the 1:30 a.m. collision along Old Brady Road.

Authorities say the pickup driver was 21-year-old Caleb Powell, who was not injured.
