DETROIT (WWJ) – MDOT  is mourning the loss of a Courtesy Patrol worker who was struck by a car while on the job last week.

Rob Morosi says David Dawson died Tuesday from injuries sustained after being struck while getting out of his van to help a motorist on I-96 near the Southfield.

“We lost a good friend today, it’s so unfortunate he was killed doing what he did best, which was helping out people and servicing the people in the state of Michigan,” said Morosi.

“He was such a kind, considerate person – very jovial, really a pleasure to know and a pleasure to work with. Everyone that has been touched by Mr. Dawson just knows the type of person he is and it’s such a sad day,” said Morosi.

Dawson leaves behind two sons…one a Cass Tech football player who has just committed to play at U of M.

Morosi says it’s the first death he’s aware of since the inception of the Courtesy Patrol.
