Construction worker killed on Interstate 95

Construction sites have many inherent risks to workers, but when construction is taking place mere feet from vehicles traveling at more than 60 mph, the chance of a fatal accident increases. Despite cautionary signs and reduced speed limits in construction zones, many drivers still refuse to slow down, and the results can be disastrous.

According to reports, a 62-year-old construction worker was killed on Interstate 95 in Maryland after a tractor-trailer driver missed a curve in the road and hit a construction site. The accident occurred in the early morning hours of June 25, around 1:30 a.m. The construction site apparently had an attenuator truck displaying a flashing arrow to help direct traffic, and the tractor-trailer hit the truck. The impact reportedly pushed the attenuator truck and the tractor-trailer into another vehicle at the construction site.

Officers reported that the tractor-trailer was headed north on I-95 at the time of the crash. Investigations were ongoing and reports were not immediately clear as to why the truck missed the bend. Authorities were in the process of going through the driver's logs.

The truck driver was transported to Prince George's County Hospital for medical treatment and was expected to survive. Parts of Interstate 95 were closed for several hours as police tried to reconstruct the scene of the accident for their investigation.

When someone you love has been killed in an accident, it's important to know that there may be legal recourse against the at-fault party through a civil suit. It's normal to have questions about this process, and a personal injury lawyer can be a valuable resource.
