PINE LEVEL, AL (WSFA) -

A Billingsley man has died following a three-vehicle crash on Interstate 65 northbound in Pine Level Sunday.

Alabama Law Enforcement Agency officials say Matthew Blair Prebula, 23, was killed when the 2015 Dodge Ram he was driving side-swiped a 2017 Nissan Altima before striking a guardrail. The Dodge was then struck by a 2005 Freightliner tractor-trailer.

Corporal Jess Thornton says Prebula was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash happened around 6:20 a.m. about six miles north of Prattville. At the time of the crash, Thornton says the Dodge Ram was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes.

Video showed traffic was backed up for about ten miles, all the way to exit 181, Millbrook, after the crash.
