Austin, TX (12/1/2020) – A driver was killed and four workers were injured after crashing into a construction site Tuesday night.

The accident happened on MoPac Expressway around 9:45 p.m. when a driver crashed into a construction site and injured four workers.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Five workers were hurt, but four were taken to the hospital. Two were taken to St. David’s in Round Rock and two were taken to Dell Seton Medical.

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

While drivers on the road pose a major threat to each other when they engage in negligent actions, they’re not always to blame for construction zone accidents. Other causes and factors that attribute to construction zone accidents include:

  • Unclear or poorly designed signs
  • Improper placement or lack of signage on roads
  • Inadequate caution warnings
  • Missing cones
  • Poor lighting
  • Construction materials and debris on roads
  • Broken or missing barricades
  • Inattentive traffic control flag persons
