A main construction zone in the center lanes of Route 7 had been coned off and flashing directional arrows and signs directed both north- and southbound traffic to the outside breakdown lanes and shoulder area of Route 7. Employee #1 had crossed the breakdown lane from the coned off construction area to work on the sensor conduit lines on the west shoulder of Route 7.

Employee #1 was struck by the right side of a southbound pickup on the left leg, hip, and head and was thrown 15 feet.
