MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - A Prattville man has died following a two-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 80, Selma Highway, near the Montgomery Regional Airport, according to Alabama Law Enforcement Agency officials.

ALEA said the wreck happened around midnight when a 1990 Kenworth semi-truck Leslie Deloach, 45, was driving failed to stop at a stop sign before making a right turn onto Highway 80 east. The semi-truck then collided head-on with a 2000 Freightliner tractor-trailer.

Troopers said Deloach was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the wreck and was ejected from the vehicle. He was taken to Baptist South Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The driver of the other vehicle was taken to Baptist South Medical Center with serious injuries.

Troopers say the westbound lanes have reopened.

No further information was released as troopers with ALEA’s Highway Patrol Division continue to investigate.
