Worker Severely Injured When Driver Crossed into Construction Zone


A motorist drove into a construction zone on the Bishop Ford Freeway, striking a worker and pinning him against another vehicle. The injured worker was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center to be treated for his injuries. Criminal charges are pending against the driver.

This acts as just another reminder of how dangerous construction zones can be when just the slightest lack of caution by drivers can lead to catastrophic injuries. Work Zone Awareness needs to be promoted and understood; otherwise, injuries like this will continue to happen.
