Sunshine Coast RCMP are seeking assistance from the public as they investigate a driver for striking a flagger at a construction site in Sechelt.

According to RCMP, at approximately 3:30 p.m. on April 10, a flagger was struck by an older grey Ford pick up truck in front of the Sechelt Medical Clinic, located at Inlet Avenue and Mermaid Street.

“Witnesses reported that the suspect vehicle was the first in a line of traffic stopped and waiting to pass, as the road was closed to one lane,” said an RCMP news release. “The flagger initiated traffic to proceed, turned his head a moment and was struck by the truck. The driver of the truck stopped momentarily, and exchanged words with the flagger, but then left the scene without providing any information.”

The driver was described as an elderly male and the licence plate was not obtained. The flagger sustained minor injuries.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact RCMP at 604-885-2266 and reference file 2014-2147.
