ORLANDO, Fla. — A memorial sign will soon go up along State Road 408 to honor a tow truck driver hit and killed on the job.
The Orlando Fire Department hosted a “slowdown, move over” law awareness ceremony and unveiled a sign paying tribute to 24-year-old Austin Gayne.
He was killed in February while loading a car onto a wrecker.
Investigators said a driver traveling west on the 408, left the road and crashed through emergency vehicles that had blocked an exit.
Gayne’s mother attended Thursday’s ceremony and said the sign will help keep his memory alive.
The “move over” law requires drivers to safely move over a lane for stopped public safety, sanitation, and utility service vehicles, tow trucks or wreckers.
