Abstract
A 31-year-old male construction worker was killed when struck by an oncoming vehicle on an interstate highway transition road. The victim jumped over a concrete barrier separating the work zone from the roadway. The vehicle that struck the victim was traveling at an estimated speed of 62-80 mph when the incident occurred. The driver of the vehicle did not see the victim until it was too late to avoid hitting him. The CA/FACE investigator determined that, in order to prevent future occurrences, employers, as part of their Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) should: 1. Ensure employees remain within the safe work zone designated by protective barriers.
