WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say a construction worker has been killed after being struck by a vehicle while placing barrels and signs on Interstate 95 in Wilmington.

Troopers said in a news release that 36-year-old Aleksandr Mitishov of Wilmington was putting up construction warning signs and barrels on I-95, just south of the Route 202 Monday night.

Police say Mitishov was wearing a reflective vest when he was hit by a car driven by 35-year-old Victor Sitiriche of Wilmington. Authorities say the impact threw Mitishov into the air. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Sitiriche remained at the scene and was not hurt. Troopers are still investigating.
