Repairing Ohio's roadways can be hazardous work, perhaps especially in the spring and summer months when the amount of work increases. Nevertheless, highway workers should be able to expect other drivers to heed signage and other warnings about taking special care in work zones. Failure to exercise due caution too often results in serious accidents.
Sadly, a road worker was killed recently in Suffield Township after being hit by a pickup truck. The man was reportedly on foot when the accident happened, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol's investigation is ongoing.
