“The crash occurred as Holland was attempting to push the disabled 1992 Nissan pickup that he was initially driving from the roadway,” said Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) Senior Trooper Kendra McKinney.

Holland was transported to a local area hospital after the crash and later succumbed to his injuries.

McKinney advised motorists to use caution when a vehicle stalls in a roadway.

“In the event a motorist’s car becomes disabled, it is important to activate your emergency hazard lights, use a phone or flashlight to make yourself visible at night, and try to refrain from standing in or close to the roadway,” McKinney said. When able to do so, contact your local law enforcement agency for assistance. Motorists should be aware of pedestrians at all times.”

Nothing further is available as Troopers with ALEA Highway Patrol Division continue to investigate.
