Construction zones present many dangers to the people working in them. According to the Federal Highway Administration, in 2010, there were 576 fatalities because of work zone crashes. That amounts to one fatality every 15 hours.
On June 25, at about 1:30 a.m., a 62-year-old construction worker was killed on I-95 near Beltzville, Maryland. According to a captain with the Maryland State Police, a tractor-trailer crashed into the work zone site after it didn't "follow a bend in the road." The contractors that were working had all the right safety equipment where it was supposed to be.
