Sep 17, 2013

The Ohio Department of Transportation yesterday officially renamed a stretch of I-71 north of Columbus in honor of a worker killed earlier this year.

27-year-old Lee Rizor was killed in April when a truck collided with his backhoe on 71 near Polaris. 59-year-old truck driver Dwayne Hill Senior fell asleep at the wheel. He was sentenced to two months in prison.
