1 killed, 1 injured in construction accident on Interstate 95

Construction accidents affect more than just the person who's injured; the person's family may also feel the impact of the injuries their loved one is dealing with. When a loved one is killed in a construction accident, the entire dynamic of a family can be altered. Now, there may be a loss of companionship, the loss of a father or husband, wife or mother. The family's income can be affected, and medical bills and funeral costs can quickly add up. In that situation, most families seek compensation through workers' compensation death benefits.

This worker's family may do that following his death; he was killed on I-95 after a driver struck him in a construction zone. The May 19 report states that two workers were struck by the 53-year-old woman driving a 2004 Jeep Liberty. The men, one age 27 and the other 31, were struck around 5:00 a.m.

After hitting the men, the driver continued heading north, veering off the road and crashing through a wired fence. The news reports that the Jeep killed the 31-year-old man on impact. The other man survived his injuries and was transported to UNC Hospitals. The driver was not injured in the crash.

The police reported that the driver has been charged with several crimes including failure to maintain a lane, failure to yield to the right of way at a construction site causing bodily injury, misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and failure to reduce speed. It's been reported that she was traveling at speeds of 70 to 75 mph when the collision took place.
