PennDot Worker Injured When Car Slams Vehicle In Work Zone Today

PennDOT worker injured in Columbia County work zone crash

A PennDOT worker was injured today when a private vehicle crashed into a work zone on State Route 11 in Scott Township, Columbia County.

The injured worker was taken to an area hospital for treatment of neck injuries.

The PennDOT worker was operating an arrow-board truck in a signed work zone when a motorist entered the work zone and slammed into the rear of the PennDOT vehicle.

Just two weeks ago, another PennDOT employee who was flagging traffic in a work zone in McKean County was struck and killed by a motorist.

That tragedy and today’s incident are prompting PennDOT to once again urge all drivers to slow down and pay full attention when approaching or passing through work zones.

GET OFF THE PHONE AND YOU MAY NOT HAVE THESE PROBLEMS. I'M ALL FOR TECHNOLOGY, BUT NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF LIVES. WHATEVER IT IS, IT'S NOT THAT IMPORTANT. IT CAN WAIT TIL YOU GET HOME. IF IT CAN'T PULL OVER!!!

Driving while talking on a cell phone is just ignorant... How many people have been killed because of this ? Everyone is sorry after the accident occurs.

Has there been a report of charges being filed in the death and injury of the PENNDOT workers in McKean County. Did they even say who hit them? Maybe in the Bradford paper? Last posters were spot on about the cell phone thing. Most people can't drive without multi-tasking these days. Is it worth someones life so you can make a hair appt from your cell while going 60 miles an hour?

It should be automatic loss of license forever if you hit someone in a work zone. I have a friend who flags and he said he jumps out of the way daily for people that do not stop in time. Yes they know who hit the worker in McKean. He didn't go very far after he hit the second man with the saw. After hitting two men and a saw he jumped out of the car and hollared at the other man that was standing there. Drugs probably????
