Construction worker injured by negligent driver in Maryland

As someone who works in construction, you know that your job can be dangerous. You take the right steps to prevent injuries; you wear reflective gear, a hard hat, and mark where you are with cones and possibly even flashing arrows on large vehicles. Despite all these precautions, it's still possible to be hit by a negligent driver while you work on a highway or busy traffic zone.

A semi-truck crash that drew the attention of those in Maryland has hit the news, because the construction worker struck has died. The truck driver who had been headed north on I-95 failed to follow a bend in the road, the reports state, and that resulted in the driver entering a construction zone. The trucker drove into an attenuator vehicle with a flashing arrow before colliding with another construction vehicle.

After striking the vehicles, the semi went on to hit a construction worker. That worker, a 62-year-old man from Pennsylvania, was taken to the hospital with critical injuries. He was pronounced dead on arrival. The 43-year-old truck driver also had to be taken to the hospital for the treatment of injuries.

The accident happened in the early morning around 1:30 a.m., so it's not clear if the driver didn't see the bend or simply was distracted or tired. The Maryland State Police troopers are investigating the incident to determine why the accident took place.

This accident is just one in a string of fatal accidents for 2015. It is the fourth that took place in June alone, and it was also the fourth to involve a tractor trailer.
