Work with Us
The Tennessee Department of Transportation frequently urges motorists to drive carefully in highway work zones. Now the Tennessee Highway Patrol says two Tennessee Department of Transportation contractors were killed and one injured in a crash early Wednesday morning along Interstate 40 in Arlington. A state trooper was also injured and is hospitalized. The two TDOT employees who died, were identified as Jared Helton, 22, and Justin Stafford, 30. And a 22 year-old man, sustained non-life-threatening injuries. TDOT issued a statement saying "We are extremely saddened by the loss of two contract workers and for the TNHighwayPatrol officer who was injured. Please Work with Us, Move Over Slow down. The department's "Work with Us" campaign asks drivers to move over and slow down for emergency and state highway vehicles and workers. As part of the campaign, TDOT created a marker to honor the 112 workers who died in the line of duty from 1948 to 2017.
