GEDDES, N.Y. (AP) - The widow of a New York Thruway worker who was fatally struck by a vehicle is helping launch a new state fair exhibit on road safety.
State police and Thruway officials on Wednesday will announce the premiere this year of a New York State Fair exhibit that encourages safe driving in work zones.
The announcement at the state fairgrounds in Syracuse will include remarks by Sally Deming. Her husband Ronald Deming, of Little Falls, died in 2016 after being struck while helping remove a stranded vehicle on the Thruway's shoulder in Central New York.
The event will also feature equipment damaged during work zone intrusions and crashes.
The state fair runs from Aug. 21 through Sept. 2.
