West Virginia DOT Urges Caution After Work Zone Accidents

November 16, 2012

West Virginia state officials are urging motorists to use caution in work zones after two Division of Highways workers were hit by vehicles.

Department of Transportation spokeswoman Carrie Bly tells the Charleston Daily Mail that both workers were hit while clearing roadside debris resulting from Superstorm Sandy.

One worker is in critical condition after he was hit by a vehicle on Wednesday in Nicholas County. The other worker suffered minor injuries when he was hit by a vehicle Saturday in Randolph.

Bly says all roads that were closed due to Superstorm Sandy have reopened. Now DOH crews are collecting debris left along roadsides.

Transportation Secretary Paul Mattox says motorists should slow down and stay alert in work zones.
