Highway worker who was hit dies



The Cincinnati Enquirer

VILLA HILLS - A 58-year-old Independence man died Tuesday from injuries sustained Monday when he was hit by a car while flagging traffic for a state highway department crew installing caution markers on River Road in Kenton County.

Frank Chandler was hit on the two-lane highway just east of Amsterdam Road about 11 a.m. Monday. Chandler had been a state employee for 30 years and worked in Northern Kentucky for 14 years, according to state officials.

A Lincoln Town Car driven by Steve Stoinoff, 84, of Villa Hills hit Chandler and then sideswiped a state highway truck stopped in the eastbound lane of the highway, according to police.

Villa Hills police said Stoinoff did not appear to be speeding and showed no sign of being under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. A decision on whether to file charges was pending completion of the crash investigation.
