“Construction Worker Hit While Putting Barrels on KY Highway”

From WKRC Cincinnati:

“A Kentucky construction worker is flown to the hospital early Wednesday morning after he was struck by a vehicle while putting out barrels on a highway.

A Kenton County Sheriff’s Deputy followed behind workers as they put out barrels along southbound I-75 between Kyles Lane and Dixie Highway in Fort Wright. But a car decided to pass the deputy’s cruiser and ended up hitting a man. The driver told deputies he didn’t realize the workers were in front of the cruiser.

The worker was flown by Air Care to University Hospital. There is no update on his injuries and his name has not yet been released.  So far, no charges have been filed against the driver who struck him.”
