MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. -- A 55-year-old Coden man was killed Saturday afternoon in a single vehicle crash on Bellingrath Road.

According to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, it was just after 3 p.m. when Alabama State Troopers responded to the fatal crash on Bellingrath Road near Delchamps Road. That's east of the Bayou La Batre city limits.

ALEA said Douglas Franklin Ladnier II was traveling north in a 2005 Ford F150 when he left the roadway struck a ditch. The truck hit several trees before coming to rest in the wood line.

Ladnier, who was not using a seat belt, was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, said Lt. Byron "Joe" Piggott of ALEA.

Troopers continue to investigate.
