PALM SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a construction worker
was seriously injured when he was hit by a truck while working on a
Palm Springs road.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office reports that 54-year-old
Ernest Chambers Howell was wearing a traffic vest in a marked
construction area early Friday morning when 19-year-old Tiffany
Ann-Marie Lanieri drove through traffic cones and hit him.

Howell was part of a road crew that was working on a resurfacing project.

Howell was taken by helicopter to a Delray Beach hospital and
was expected to survive.

Authorities were investigating the cause of the crash.
