MARION, AR- (WMC-TV) - The investigation continues into why a pickup truck swerved into a construction zone killing two highway workers.
The accident happened around 10:15 p.m. along I-55 in Marion, Arkansas.
Arkansas State Police say two people in the truck that caused the crash were taken to The MED.
Two highway workers died on the scene.
Marshall Turner, 55, of Memphis and James Rains of Marion were killed while paving a portion of I-55.
Grover Flournoy was not Turner's biological son, but told Action News 5 he might as well have been.
"You know, he pretty much taught me everything I know," he said.
Flournoy said the family knew highway work was dangerous, but Turner had never been hurt in more than 30 years on the job.
"It's a chance you take man. We all do, but that right there was uncalled for," said Flournoy.
