One injured after work truck hit on I-480

BROOKLYN, Ohio– A truck doing work for ODOT was hit on Interstate 480, sending one man to the hospital.

It happened in the westbound lanes near Ridge Road in Brooklyn early Wednesday morning.

Brooklyn police said a pick-up truck, traveling at about 15 mph, was painting road markings when it was struck by a passing vehicle.

The 26-year-old driver was taken to University Hospitals Parma Medical Center.

The Ohio Department of Transportation said the crew was from Dura Mark Inc.

“This serves as yet another reminder of the importance of slowing down and moving over for all roadside workers,” said Amanda McFarland, ODOT spokeswoman.

ODOT said it does not have any traffic cameras in the area that recorded the incident.
