AKRON, Ohio — A reckless driver could've killed construction workers who were just doing their jobs early Tuesday morning on I-77 in Akron.
Dashcam footage from News 5 photographer Mike Vielhaber shows a vehicle losing control near a construction zone where six workers were doing overnight work.
I don't know how but 6 construction workers were just saved from being hit by a person losing control. This is in Akron on 59 to I-76 west/ I-77. The driver tried to pass a car that was slowing for the work zone. I was sure I was going to be witness something awful. #MoveOver pic.twitter.com/jpD06vRXDd— Mike Vielhaber (@MVielhaber) May 21, 2019
The driver tried to pass a car in the right lane that was slowing down for the work zone.
The state law requires drivers to move over to an adjacent lane when approaching any vehicle with flashing or rotating lights parked on the roadside. It says drivers should slow down if moving over isn’t possible due to traffic, weather conditions or the lack of a second lane.
