TowNews Posted May 9, 2018 Share Posted May 9, 2018 RICHFIELD TWP.: The Ohio Turnpike will dedicate a new memorial sign Friday in honor of a tow truck driver who was killed on the highway. The sign says: “Move over for stopped vehicle with flashing lights. In memory of Michael Kennedy.” Kennedy of Ravenna, whose nickname was “Turnpike Mike,” was an operator for Interstate Towing. He was killed in May 2015 when he was struck by a tractor-trailer while helping a driver who had a flat tire. He was 56. The sign, part of the Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission’s Memorial Sign Program, will be located at Milepost 182. The dedication will take place at 10 a.m. at the Boston Heights maintenance building, 3245 Boston Mills Road. It will include remarks by Kennedy’s widow Vickie Kennedy, Turnpike Chairman Jerry N. Hruby, Turnpike Executive Director Randy Cole and Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Richard Reeder. RESOURCE LINK Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
