An Alabama prison inmate is dead and another is battling for his life after being mowed down by an out of control car.
It happened on Interstate 65 just North of Prattville as a prison detail worked along the highway.
Authorities say a driver from Indiana swerved off the road and hit the two inmates.
Investigators don't yet know if charges will be filed.
The critically hurt inmate was transported to Montgomery’s Jackson Hospital in critical but non-life threatening injuries.
The inmates' names are not yet being released.
