A Fort Bend county sheriff’s deputy, John Norsworthy, died recently when a piece of road debris obstructed his car’s path and forced him to take evasive action. Responding to an emergency call, Mr. Norsworthy approached a four-foot square board of thick material used for buffering sound. Mr. Norsworthy veered to avoid the debris, lost control of his car, crashed into a ditch, hit a tree and flipped. Unfortunately, Mr. Norsworthy passed away as a result of his injuries.
Texas Department of Public Safety reports show that objects such as those that led to the death of Mr. Norsworthy are a significant threat to drivers’ safety. In the last five years, road debris has caused 2,728 accidents, including 756 injuries and 19 fatalities.
