A driver has been arrested after allegedly hitting a flagger on Thursday morning.
Kamloops RCMP said the woman was signalling the car to stop just before 10 a.m. near the corner of Valleyview Drive and Victors Road.
Police say the driver indicated he saw the flagger and knew he needed to stop his car but carried on driving, hitting the flagger as she was standing on the road.
The flagger was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
RCMP say a 46-year-old man turned himself into the Kamloops detachment in connection with the case.
The male driver was from Kamloops and was not previously known to police.
Crown is currently determining which charges to lay.
“There are many construction sites within Kamloops and most are controlled by flaggers,” said Cpl. Jodi Shelkie.
“For proper flow of traffic and for the safety of the flaggers, it is vital that all drivers obey the flaggers. Exercise caution in construction zones and, above all else, show patience.”
