DOT Adding Street Lights To Stretch Of Interstate 690

Syracuse, N.Y. - The state DOT says it's going to be adding street lights to a stretch of Interstate 690.

The lights will be installed in the area where Jorge Jimenez was accidentally struck and killed by Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim. The lights will be put up when the DOT reconstructs the Thompson Road Bridge over the highway next year.

The DA's report on the accident that killed Jimenez noted there were no road lights near the scene of the tragedy and witnesses who dialed 911 said the darkness made it difficult to see.
