A rash of accidents involving Mississippi Department of Transportation workers over the past two days has caused two officials with the department to urge motorists to practice safe driving in work zones.
MDOT Executive Director Melinda McGrath sent out a tweet at 9:57 a.m. on Wednesday that said six MDOT workers had been hit while working on state highways in the last two days.
In her tweet, McGrath asked motorists to decelerate and move over when crews are on the road.
