On September 21, 2011, at approximately 7:30 a.m., three Fayetteville city employees were rushed to a nearby hospital after being struck by a SUV in the 1900 block of Joyce Boulevard.
According to the driver, she did not see the workers, because the sun was in her eyes. The woman drove over construction cones before hitting two of the workers and clipping the third. Two of the workers were in serious condition after being transported to Washington Regional Medical Center. The condition of the third worker was not known at the time the story was reported by 5 News.
