MoDOT Worker Recalls Close Call in Video

When most of us go to work each day, we probably don't have to worry about a truck pulling a trailer skidding sideways toward us at a high rate of speed. 

But for many Missouri Department of Transportation employees, circumstances like the one described are all too real. Columbia Maintenance Crew Leader Kent Cunningham experienced this situation.  He tells his close-call story in a brief video designed to promote safe driving in work zones now that highway maintenance and construction projects are in full swing.
