Watch Out For Road Crews

Written by Mike Turner on February 11, 2014

The Oregon Department of Transportation is asking drivers to be especially aware of road crews. This after a truck hit two workers on I-5 near Wilsonville Tuesday.

The crews are working to clean up the highway in advance of the sweepers picking up gravel laid down during the storms.

The driver told witnesses he had choked on a drink of coffee and lost control of his rig. One of the workers was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
