COLUMBIA, La. (AP) - State police say one construction worker died and two others suffered injuries in a Caldwell Parish crash.

The accident Tuesday afternoon on U.S. Highway 165 just north of Columbia.

Senior Trooper Michael Reichardt says a construction truck, equipped with a large arrow board, was stopped in the northbound outside lane of Highway 165.

Reichardt says a Cadillac ATS, driven by 42-year-old Jan Williams of Columbia, was traveling north when she attempted to move into the inside lane but struck the rear of construction pickup and three workers.

Reichardt says two of the construction workers were taken to a nearby hospital with moderate injuries and one was airlifted.

Troopers say 30-year-old Michael Roberts, of West Monroe, died Tuesday night.

The crash remains under investigation.
