A Missouri Department of Transportation worker, Lyndon D. Ebker, 55, was struck and killed Thursday morning as he worked to clean a bridge in Franklin County. Lyndon Ebker of New Haven, Missouri had worked for MoDOT for more than 30 years. In an interview, Greg Horn, MoDOT’s St. Louis District Engineer, said, “Our hearts are heavy, too. He has lots of friends here and will be missed.”
Mr. Ebker was part of a MoDOT crew, cleaning road salt and other grime off a bridge on Highway 100 near Buchheit Road about 9:15 a.m. when the accident occurred, authorities said. The scene is west of Washington, Missouri.
