News Outlook Your Hometown Newspaper April 21, 2016 - 11 I Photos courtesy of KYTC District 9 Tonya Ashby spoke last Monday at the Kentucky Trans- portation Cabinet District 9 office in Flemingsburg in remembrance of her late brother, Kendale Ashby, who was killed in a work zone accident in 2014 near Mid- way. Last week was National Work Zone Safety Week in Kentucky and across the United States, high- lighting the importance of awareness and safety in work zones along our highways and roads. The Kentucky Trans- portation Cabinet District 9 office in Flemingsburg hosted a ceremony on Monday that included a remembrance of a Bath County man killed a 2014 work zone accident in Jes- samine County. Kendale Ashby died at Georgetown Community Hospital on Jan. 20, 2014 after being struck by a car shortly after exiting his own work vehicle near Midway. He was 36 years old and had a wife and four daughters. He was employed by the George B. Stone Company of Sharpsburg, which was performing repair work to a guardrail. His sister, Tonya Ashby, spoke during the ceremo- ny. "He was a great broth- er, and he was a loving fa- ther to his girls," she said. "It's not been easy losing Kendale Ashby him, and we struggle ev- ery day. We seem to sur- vive day by day, by calling each other, and laughing, and talking about him." She thanked Transpor- tation Cabinet employees for their day-to-day hard work. "I will keep you all in my prayers, that you all return to your families," she said. Tonya said that she wears a safety orange bracelet in memory of her brother that reads, "National Work Zone Me- modal - Respect and Re- member." Kendale Ashby's name was recently added to the National Work Zone Memorial, a traveling ex- hibit that aims raise pub- lic awareness of the need to respect and stay safe in America's roadway work zones. 93 Kentucky Transpor- tation Cabinet employees have been killed in work- related accidents dur- ing the fifty years of the existence of the agency, according to Allen Blair, information officer for the Transportation Cabinet District 9 office in Flem- ingsburg. Their names are en- graved on plaques that will hang in all Transportation Cabinet offices around the state. "We don't want to take this plaque down and add another name," Blair said. Other speakers include Bart Bryant, District 9 Chief Engineer, and Charles Glover, Executive Director of the Kentucky Association of Highway Contractors, and they also emphasized the impor- tance of work zone safety. Those in attendance at the ceremony also observed a moment of silence for those lost in work zone accidents. Work zone crashes have been on the rise in Ken- tucky since 2012, reach- ing 819 in 2015. These re- sulted in 194 injuries and 7 total fatalities last year. According to the Fed- eral Highway Adminis- tration, one person dies every 13 hours and one person is injured every 13 minutes in work zones in the United States. Four out of five victims in work zone crashes are motor- ists, not highway workers. Motorists can keep work zones safe by obey- ing posted speed limits, avoiding distracted driv- ing, and paying attention to changing conditions within the work zone. ! !
