Six days earlier the man was quote in a television interview as saying, “Please slow down and watch out for us here.” The woman who caused the Missouri auto accident claimed she didn’t see him or the emergency vehicles until it was too late and she was sentenced to probation for the 2006 construction accident on Monday.
