New signs remember Chris Foat

Christopher A. Foat


Two new signs have been erected in Woodstock on Clay Street north of Church Street. The signs, on opposite sides of Clay Street at Newell Street, warn drivers not to drink and drive and were placed in memory of Christopher A. Foat.

Foat, 23, died early on December 2, 2007, when he was struck from behind by a pick-up truck with a snowplow. Foat and friends had been on the Square and were walking home in the roadway "with" traffic because sidewalks were icy.

The 38-year-old driver of the pick-up truck was convicted of two counts of aggravated driving under the influence in February 2009 and was sentenced to ten years in prison. The driver reportedly had been in the U.S. illegally for 20 years and, when he is released from prison, he will be deported from the United States.
