Was safety signage visible where a cable worker died Monday in North Knox County? According to neighbors, no orange could be found.
"They didn't have any flaggers or signs or cones," said Chrissy Tillman, who lives nearby and walked to the scene after the worker was struck.
According to Tillman and another neighbor, the cable crew arrived on their road a short time before the incident occurred. They believe the team consisted of three workers and two work trucks.
"They had been working down Central [Avenue Pike]," Tillman explained. "I guess they just turned on our road when it happened last night."
