A man working on road construction in Sydney’s northwest is the latest to be run down by a driver over the legal alcohol limit.
The 59 year old worker was critically injured when a driver four times over the legal alcohol limit plowed through the roadworks site and came to a stop after hitting into the vehicle of another worker.
The man sustained multiple fractures to limbs and serious head injuries.
The worker was flown to Westmead Hospital where he remained in a critical condition. This incident highlights the risks that roadworkers are faced with every day.
