    I passed through after this accident and it was dark which made it hard to see our way through.It was also raining! Glad the workmen had reflective jackets on.

      Me too; came home from Columbus about 10:45; dark, raining, and a little scary. Grateful for the jackets and lights, but it was difficult. But was grateful for the traffic emergency sign and flares way before the actual accident site.
