N.C. Department of Transportation Worker Killed in Construction Accident on N.C. 12 in Outer Banks

A Hertford man who was helping with cleanup after Hurricane Sandy was killed in an accident on N.C. 12 on Sunday.

WorkersComp13_06162014The man, who had worked for the N.C. Department of Transportation for 15 years, was driving a dump truck while cleaning up tons of sand covering the highway south or Oregon Inlet in the Outer Bank after Hurricane Sandy. The road has been closed for two weeks while crews try to clean up the sand and debris.

The accident involved another dump truck driver, but no other details were released about the cause of the accident.

Traffic was reopened on the road a day earlier from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. The accident happened after traffic was closed again for the day - sometime between 1 a.m. and 1:45 a.m.

Sand is still deep on the highway along Pea Island, and stretches of pavement north of Rodanthe on Hatteras Island have to be repaired. N.C. DOT officials say that it will take several more weeks to finish repaired storm damage along the road and on the Oregon Inlet bridge.
