KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, Ind. -- A road crew worker was killed when a vehicle struck him as he removed construction signs along SR 13 Friday afternoon, according to the Kosciusko County Sheriff's Office.
Just before 2 p.m. on Friday, Ben Fisher and a coworker were removing road construction signs in a utility pole project area on SR 13 north of E. Waco Drive.

Fisher was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the F-150 was not injured.
This crash remains under investigation by the Kosciusko County Fatal Team.
