INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa State Patrol says a construction worker was killed on Highway 65 south of Indianola when he was struck by a truck.

Authorities say the worker, who wasn’t identified Thursday, was hit Thursday afternoon by a tractor-trailer rig in a construction zone north of the community of Liberty Center.

The truck driver kept driving but was later stopped by state troopers.

The worker had been holding a sign and urging vehicles to slow down through a work zone when he was hit.
