[GOV] Governor Pence Expresses Condolences for Construction Workers Killed on I-69
Start Date: 5/9/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 5/9/2014
Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – A crash on southbound I-69 near Indianapolis has killed two road construction workers today. Governor Mike Pence is urging Hoosier motorists to slow down in work zones and take precaution this construction season.

“We extend our sincere condolences to the families of the two construction workers killed today in the I-69 accident,” said Gov. Mike Pence. “This tragedy reminds us that we must slow down and pay close attention in highway construction work zones. Hoosiers must work together to reduce the number of accidents in highway work zones and protect Indiana’s workers.”

This is the first fatality involving an INDOT worker or contractor since 2012. However, in 2012 more than 50 Hoosier workers were killed in transportation-related incidents, making it the leading cause of workplace fatalities in Indiana.

Construction season is already in full swing and many Indiana roadways are under repair and construction. Motorists are urged to slow down, be alert and exercise caution while traveling on roadways, especially in work zones.
