The Lake County Coroner’s Office Wednesday afternoon June 26, 2019 released the identity of the road construction flagger that was killed on Route 41 near Old Elm Road on Tuesday June 25, 2019 about 12:01 a.m.

Laura Casey, 56, of Antioch, was working for Peter Baker and Sons Company as a road construction flagger at a road construction site where night time road grinding operations were underway when she was hit and killed by a dump truck. Lake Forest police said she was struck by a dump truck in the southbound lanes of Route 41 south of Old Elm Road. The dump truck was backing up as it was involved in the road construction operations in the south side of Lake Forest.

Lake Forest police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 12:02 a.m. Tuesday June 25, 2019 to a report that a road construction worker assigned as a flagger was hit by a road grinder on southbound Route 41 south of Old Elm Road. Laura Casey was pronounced dead at the scene by Lake Forest Fire Department firefighter/paramedics.

An autopsy performed on Casey Wednesday morning June 26, 2019 determined Laura Casey died from multiple crushing injuries, according to Lake County Coroner Howard Cooper.

“We have been in close contact with Ms. Casey’s family and our deepest condolences go out to them during this difficult time. This is truly a tragedy,”

— Lake County Coroner Howard Cooper

Casey was a mom and attended Round Lake High School. She began working for Peter Baker and Son Company August 1, 2018.

The southbound lanes of Route 41 at Old Elm Road were closed for an extended investigation as the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team investigated the fatal work-related incident overnight.

Initially no charges have been filed and there was no indication released about what may have caused the fatality in a road construction work zone. The crash is under investigation by the Lake Forest Police Department, the Lake County Coroner’s Office and the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team (MCAT). Initially there was no confirmation whether OSHA was involved in the investigation.

OSHA and the USDOT Federal Highway Association provide significant resources on Work Zone safety regulations, guidelines and training. For example, flagger stations should be illuminated. Lighting for workers on foot and equipment operators is to be at least 5 foot-candles or greater. Where available lighting is not sufficient, flares or chemical lighting should be used, according to a Work Zone Safety fact sheet from OSHA.
