A Northport man was killed Monday in a single-vehicle crash on Alabama Highway 171.

Jacob Dale Montgomery, 22, was driving a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado that veered from the roadway and into a ditch, said Alabama Law Enforcement Agency spokesman Trooper Reginal King.

Many people in the close-knit Samantha community are mourning the death of the young man, who went by Jake. He was a 2015 Northside High School graduate who played football and remained supportive of the school's athletic teams after graduation. He was a current member of the Northside High School football team coaching staff.
