Me and My Daddy
Unfortunately, the death of a Laborer on the job is an all-too-common event.
John R. Crozier, Jr., a member of Local 911 in Ottawa, IL., was struck by a drunk driver on May 22, 2003, while flagging in a roadway work zone. He died a few days later. He was the single father of his son, Alex, age eight.
The driver, who registered .240 on the blood-alcohol test and had a previous DUI, received a 10-year sentence for aggravated reckless homicide, the longest sentence ever issued for this crime in the county. His own two sons, ages seven and nine, were among the occupants of his vehicle when the tragedy occurred.
Through the publication and distribution of this poster, IDOT and LIUNA hope to prevent further tragedy in highway work zones.
