North Carolina troopers are urging drivers to slow down in work zones, the day after a DOT worker was hit and killed while working in the median of U.S. Highway 70 in Wayne County, N.C. Two other work crew members were at the scene of the incident.
William “Grey” Bailey, 36, was an engineering technician who had been with the DOT since 2010.
Troopers said the driver of the car was impaired and she had two children in the car with her. She's been charged with DWI, felony death by vehicle and child endangerment.
Bailey’s death occurred during Work Zone Awareness Week, during which drivers are reminded to take care when driving through work zones.
