Patterson, NY - Construction Worker Hit, Injured By Car on I-84

Patterson, NY (July 12, 2019) - A worker with the Department of Transportation was struck by a vehicle while working along I-84 in Patterson. The incident took place around 9:40 a.m. on Thursday, July 11th, near mile marker 63.3.  

The New York State Police responded to a call regarding the crash. When investigators arrived on the scene, they determined that a driver traveling through the construction zone on I-84 crashed into two trucks before striking the worker. The worker, who has not been identified, sustained non-life-threatening injuries, as he was able to make an evasive maneuver just prior to being struck.

The crash caused the right lanes of I-84 to be closed near the site. Motorists were advised to use caution when traveling through the area. Officials are still looking into the incident but there is no word at this time on whether charges are expected.
