New Study Finds High Rate of Work Zone Crashes

A new study by the Associated General Contractors of America found that 45 percent of highway contractors had vehicles crash into their construction work zones in the past year.

The study found that work zone crashes are more likely to kill vehicle operators than construction zone workers.

Forty-three percent percent of contractors reported that motor vehicle operators or passengers were injured, and 16 percent were killed in those crashes.
