Man who killed road worker won't get jail time

A driver who struck a road construction worker last year in Chaska on what was then called U.S. Hwy. 212 won't do jail time, reported the Star Tribune Saturday.

"LuAllen H. Kettner told a judge Friday he would trade his life for that of 47-year-old Leo Kuisle of Stewartville."

Kettner was driving a large SUV when he struck Kuisle, who was the foreman on the construction job.

According to a police report, Kuisle had a blood alcohol content of 0.08 and wasn't wearing proper reflection safety gear at the time, and this may have been a contributing factor in the accident.
