We hope the victim makes a speedy and complete recovery. According to authorities, not only was the work zone properly marked but a trooper with a marked car and emergency lights activated was at the scene before the accident. Blatant disregard of these signs that sent the driver into that work zone.
That was the second strike against him. The first was that he was behind the wheel at all. When are people going to learn that if they have been drinking they cannot get behind the wheel of any type of vehicle? Too many people are lost every day due to this one small act of negligence.
