A DOT worker was killed Wednesday by an 18-wheeler in Duplin County. And now Maryland police are looking for a driver who struck and killed a contract worker from Goldsboro and pulled off.
Officials are stressing road safety to drivers and urging them to take extra precaution especially in work zones.
Pulling over to next lane when crews are out on the road or slowing down is the law in North Carolina.
We spoke with one local man who is working to fix a curb in a residential area.
He explained how dangerous it is working in neighborhoods when the speed limit is 25 mph.
Hopes are drivers will get the message and stay alert while out on the roads.
