A Jemison man was killed May 9 in a single-vehicle crash, according to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.

According to Alabama State Troopers, Alan C. Giles, 66, was traveling on Alabama Highway 145 near the 7 mile marker approximately three miles south of Jemison around 5 a.m. that day in a 1991 Jeep Wrangler.

The vehicle left the roadway and struck a ditch.
