Two road workers in Tampa were struck by a car last Tuesday in the early morning hours while working along Tampa’s Dale Mabry Highway. The workers are now recovering from injuries sustained in the accident. A silver car driving down the highway veered off the road, jumped a curb, and hit the workers. Another worker witnessed the crash and attempted to chase after the automobile. However, the car sped away before police arrived on scene.
According to police, the third worker was able to obtain a partial license plate number. All three of these workers are employed by Stripe-A-Lot Paving. The company subcontracts with the City of Tampa. The names of the workers who were injured are Michael Madson and Craig Walls. Walls was treated at the scene of the accident. Madson was transported to Tampa General with minor injuries, including bruises and bumps. Authorities are still searching for the silver vehicle that struck and injured these workers.
