The Tennessee Highway Patrol says two Tennessee Department of Transportation contractors killed in a crash Wednesday morning on I-40 worked for a company in Ohio called A&A Safety.

The company identified the workers Wednesday afternoon as 22-year-old Jared Helton and 30-year-old Justin Stafford. A third contractor, 22-year-old Cody Fultz, was hospitalized.

According to the company, all three men live in Kentucky. Helton and Stafford were from Eastern Kentucky.

The crash happened in a construction zone near the Arlington exit and involved an 18-wheeler. A THP officer was also injured. He went to the hospital with non-critical injuries, according to a spokesperson at the scene.

TDOT released a brief statement on Twitter several hours after the crash, saying they are “extremely saddened” by the contractors’ deaths.
