PRINCETON, W.Va. — A dedication ceremony to honor two West Virginia Parkways Authority workers killed in a crash along Interstate 77 last year has been scheduled to take place April 15.
A bridge near where the incident happened will be named after Nathan Thompson, 32, and Richard Lambert, 21, both of Kegley, who were killed Aug. 16, 2018 near the Camp Creek exit in Mercer County, when they were struck by a tractor-trailer. A third Parkways worker was injured.
The ceremony will be held at the West Virginia Division of Highways District Ten Headquarters, located off of exit 14, beginning at 1 pm.
The driver of the semi-truck, James Crandall, 52, of Reesville, Ohio, remains free on bond after he was arraigned in October on two misdemeanor counts of negligent homicide, failure to maintain control, reckless driving, having an unsafe vehicle, and following too closely.
