ST. LOUIS – Two Missouri Department of Transportation employees were killed this morning when they were struck while working on striping operations on Telegraph Road over Interstate 255. A third employee was transported to the hospital, and his condition is uncertain at this time.
James Brooks and Kaitlyn Anderson were killed during the incident. Brooks, a senior maintenance worker, was 58 and worked for the department almost nine years. Anderson, an intermediate maintenance worker, was 25 and worked for the department for two years.
“Our hearts are breaking and our sympathies go out to all the families of our employees. These are our friends and coworkers and their presence will be sorely missed by us,” said Tom Blair, MoDOT St. Louis District Engineer.
