The family of a North Carolina man who fell to his death while trying to help wreck victims on Interstate 440 in Raleigh says more safety measures are needed in the area.
WRAL-TV reported the family of 33-year-old Carroll "Lee" Eames Jr. of Willow Springs says additional precautions on the road might have saved his life.
Eames was killed about 7 p.m. Friday when he jumped over a barrier between the eastbound and westbound lanes to get out of the way of another vehicle. Police say Eames apparently didn't realize there was a gap between the roads that opens to Crabtree Creek.
After a similar fatal accident in 2005, the state Transportation Department put a fence on the inside part of the Inner Beltline. Fencing wasn't added to the inside part of the Outer Beltline, where Eames fell.
