These kind of accidents happen far too often. You could not pay me enough to this kind of job with all the crazies on the road.

It would seem to me that the speed limit should have been decreased before the victim was putting markings on the road. Then...again, it only seems like common sense to slow down in construction zones anyway.

In either case a man doing his job was killed and that's a damn shame. I am sure the driver was horrified and glad he stayed to cooperate with authorities instead of being one of those hit and run maniacs.

My sincere sympathy to the family of the victim.

Maybe it is time to train National Gaurdsman to give these idiot drivers tickets. More and more people are driving like COMPLETE IDIOTS. Zig zagging from one lane to another, cutting people off, 70 to 90 mph. There is no way law enforcement can stop all these jerks. Need to fry a few a--es to wake these people up.

@ help, did you read the story at all? Were you there that night? Do you REALLY know all the facts to make that kind of judgement? I doubt it.
The story even says that the speed limit was not dropped down. It also says "They had traffic cones that kind of infringed into that right lane, so traffic that was open in that right lane they were also using a portion of the berm to proceed."
This is a very unfortunate accident, 2 people at the wrong place at the wrong time. I do know some inside information about this accident, and it was truely just that, an accident.

accident or not, so many lives are affected by this. Yes it could have been an accident, but too many people are distracted by driving, phones, texting are all too many times involved. Something like this should make people stop, think, slow down, not only are there 3 children withouth a father, I am sure that th driver will never be the same knowing he is responsible for this tragic event, whether it was an accident or not.
