KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Missouri Department of Transportation supervisor was killed Monday morning while on the job.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, 61-year-old Lloyd Crawford was placing signs advising there was water over the roadway on Highway 273 at the intersection of Route 371 in Tracy around 9 a.m.

While placing the signs, he was struck by a motorist.

That driver stopped and is cooperating with the investigation.

Crawford was the Platte City maintenance supervisor and had worked for MoDOT since 2003.

“Our sympathy and prayers go out to Lloyd’s family,” said MoDOT Kansas City District Engineer Chris Redline in a release. “Lloyd was a friend to many and will be missed by us all. He was a valuable employee and had a long history with MoDOT. Our hearts are heavy.”
