This has got to be the worst paint overspray situation I have ever come accross. When the accident occurred, paint containers inside his vehicle exploded on impact covering the driver, his dog, and the interior of his vehicle with paint. Note the driver covered head to toe with paint. Try and imagine what the driver’s first thoughts were at the moment of impact and what words he might have yelled. We’ll pray that he and his dog are all right.
Every year the Department of Transportation conducts road painting operations starting in mid April and continues operations into the fall, sometimes as late as the end of November.
Motorists are advised to heed the warnings and follow the instructions on the Department’s road painting vehicles. Motorists are also urged to watch out for safety cones and other markers indicating fresh or wet paint and are warned specifically to stay off any wet yellow or white painted road lines that might be encountered.
