Death of Lubbock Construction Worker Raises Safety Awareness

One year after the death of a Lubbock construction worker, his family is urging drivers to slow down in construction zones.

Cody Green, 21, was a Granite Construction Employee, who was hit by a semi while working on the Marsha Sharp Freeway.

On Wednesday, Sharon McManus-Southern returned to the site of her son's death, to remember him and raise driver awareness in construction zones.

"I just hope this serves as a reminder to everyone that they need to slow down," said McManus-Southern. "And really do like the sign says and give these people a break."

Tonight on NewsChannel 11 at Ten, we'll show you how Green's death is raising safety awareness among construction crews, as well.
