ROCHESTER. N.Y. (WHEC) — The latest Good Question report is a follow up about a horrific crash.
The impact was devastating. A speeding driver lost control and blew through a concrete sound barrier along I-390 in Henrietta, killing one of his three friends in the car.
Experts who did the estimate of damage believe the car was going more than 80 mph. Deputies say the driver, Jordin Campbell, was drunk at the time. He's now in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide.
As for the wall, the crash happened in January 2019. The gaping hole along the interstate remained until nearly a year and a half later.
The NYSDOT told News10NBC’s Brennan Somers that crews closed the gap and put up a new piece of the wall in May of this year.
At the time, days after the crash in 2019, we were told repairs were scheduled.
In follow-ups, state DOT officials said the work was always on the list, and concrete walls are designed mainly for noise. They have no safety purpose.
