Yet another road-side flagger has been struck by a vehicle in B.C.
The latest incident occurred in the Okanagan Valley on Nov. 17 when a driver was apparently travelling too fast in a construction zone and didn’t have time to respond to the flagger’s command to stop.
The 66 year-old flagger was struck and had to be rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.
